Very helpful staff allow you to try as many of the unusual flavour combinations as you want before you make a decision on what to have. The pear and blue cheese flavour was lovely! Huge portions make it good value.

We came to this specific location as we were told this one would have a shorter line - it was still around the block when we arrived but it was quite hot out and a nice cool treat seemed appropriate. Great selection of unique flavors...More
