This is a very well known ice cream pace in Mount Vernon. It has awesome ice cream and food. Great place for a family outing any day of the week.

Homemade, delicious oce cream in many flavors. Price is cheap and cones are huge. On a beautiful weekend day expect a line but it's worth it.

If you love ice cream this is the place to go, especially for the money. You can't beat their prices and their ice cream is very good.

The ice cream is made on the property and can also be bought by the quart. Not a lot of help at times when they have food and ice cream orders but always friendly and welcoming.

Ice cream portions are enormous - 3 huge scoops for just $2.75 in a waffle cone. Ice cream was pretty good too, not exactly the low quality type.
