Good selection of ice creams which taste good and are refreshing but we have had better. Quaint if relatively cramped shop.

We only got ice cream which was delicious. I had the 180 peanut butter which is perfect for any peanut butter lover :). There is also a candy shop on the other side. Great summer vibes!!

My husband and I stopped by to get a cookie. It was delicious! In addition, the owner (I assume she was the owner...she had the air of ownership, lol) gave us good advice on places to eat during our visit. Very friendly spot.
