A divine sweet treat too close to home! Can’t go wrong with the blackberry mint chip and salted carmel chip atop the sturdy waffle cone! Flavors change often, so try something new if they don’t have your go-to favorite!

We were looking for an ice cream treat and decided to try Sebastian Joe’s. There were quite a few flavors to pick from. I was delighted to see vegan flavors but after trying, they were too sweet. A handful of baked treats also.

I live about 2 blocks from here, and I find myself coming here more for coffee than ice cream. Their cold press is very good, but you can't go wrong with anything on the menu! Their baked goods are also excellent! My favorite is the...More
