Stopped in before dinner, my wife got a couple samples and we made our choices. The options for the scoops ice cream flavors are a little unorthodox with some standards as well. The ice cream was very good, hit the spot, and was enough to obviate our dinner. All good. Sitting in the front of the store at the street... More

Peppermint hot chocolate was Truly Scrumptious. Reminded me of something out of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I would recommend stopping in if you're in the mood for a sweet treat.

Last thing I needed was ice cream at night but that didn't stop us. As their sign says "It's never too cold for ice cream". Even when the line is out the door we still waited.

The sign outside reads it's never too cold for ice cream and they prove it to be true! I couldn't decide between 2 flavors and the kind woman let me sample them both. Service was quick and friendly! I ultimately went with the minty mint chip, which was delightful. My boyfriend, who is a vanilla man, shook it up by... More

I loved the smell of the place as soon as we walked in. Very cramped, little place but amazing ice cream and great flavors. Lots to offer!
