I went here for the first time last week and the ice cream was outstanding. The staff was very helpful and offered tastes of various options before we ordered. We were in and out quickly and overall very satisfied with the entire experience.

Several of us went here after dining downtown. Prepare to wait a while on a Saturday night, which was fine with us. Very high quality ice cream. Would recommend, will go back.

One scoop cones run approximately $3.50 each in a sugar cone. The serving is very generous...but I know you will want two scoops! The flavors vary from day to day. There is a... More

We regularly go get ice cream after meeting for pizza. Best in town! Flavors change all the time but they have the good old standbys. They candy coat cones for an extra special treat!

Great Ice Cream. Period. Located in the Heights some indoor and outdoors seating. Large selection of flavors that will not disappoint. It is not cheap but have always loved the product.

We were doing the shop small on Saturday and stopped in for a treat. We chose the hot fudge sundae since it was cool. I had an ice cream with hot caramel topped on it and nuts to go as well. Prices are great for the Ice cream that you get and the service is the best, very friendly! We'll... More

This is the best ice cream in the area and their specialty candy covered waffle cones make it even more special. Never had a flavor that we didn't like, and I'm not one to stick with just one flavor - I like to change it up. My only suggestion is never get the "kids cone" it's significantly smaller than a...

A single scoop of hand dipped vanilla ice cream with hot home made fudge topping - served in a cup with two spoons - was perfect for the two of us. Inside table seating. Sidewalk tables and chairs. Handicapped accessible.
