I can't really even put into words how amazing this ice cream was. I've never had better ice cream ever. We all got the "kid" size which is 2 scoops. The store is small but has a large seating area outside.

Great choices, fantastic flavors, it was running on all cylinders when we was there. They was very good at what they did. Alittle wait but the line moved. Out of four of us we was not disappointed. Great stop after supper or that fact anytime.

Best home made ice cream I've found. Every flavor I've tried has been great. You get 2 scoops with the children's size cone and 4 scoops with the small. I couldn't believe it! They have a continuous flow of customers and at times crowds. It...More

Very busy most afternoons and nights and especially in hot weather. Probably Monday night may be slowest. You could call them and ask.
