This is our ice cream place. Best soft ice cream you'll find anywhere. Owned by a very nice couple. You can tell they love children and serving the public.

Friendly faces, fantastic ice cream. Even have a puppy dish with vanilla and mini dog biscuits. All homemade and worth a stop or a special trip from outlying areas.

Very good ice cream and tons of flavor options, both soft and hard. The also have ice cream cartons to go and ice cream wheel. The wheels are very good but getting too expensive in my opinion. Over $10 for 6 wheels.
