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.

If I could use one word to describe Simply Sweet it would be YUM!!! Great selection of ice cream choices, hard, yogurt and sherbets. They offer wonderful sundae's choices. They make their own brownies to add to any of these wonderful delights! Prices are average....More
