This is a ice cream place that has no personality. The people waiting on you have none the atmosphere is blaa!

Be sure you have cash as they don't accept credit cards. Ice cream portions are big and not cheap. Strawberry is sooo good.

The soft ice cream is delicious and the portions are huge. Prices are reasonable. The place is immaculate. It's cash only. This was our first visit, and we look forward to returning!

We've been stopping here for years. The cones are huge and the prices are quite fair. My lone comment is the soft serve flavors are mild. The orange/vanilla twist is a favorite of mine but the orange is just barely orange flavored. That hasn't stopped...More
