Unique way of icecream! This icecream was absolutely one of the BEST I’ve ever tasted! Super fun way to mix all ingredients into vanilla or chocolate ice cream flavor. So many combinations possible! I had vanilla with strawberry, banana, coconut, white chocolate & pecans. Absolutely...More

Some girlfriends and I visited after dinner one night for some late night treats. So glad they stay open late. We all either had ice cream or iced coffee, and we all were pretty happy with what we got. Lots to choose from. Friendly staff.

Huge crowds at the end of the bridge waited 40 minutes after we paid to get ice cream (50) minutes inall. Ice cream was good but overpriced and small portions. Overall, wouldn’t go back.

The ice cream is very good, with lots of add-in options. There aren't many options for the basic ice cream, I think just chocolate and vanilla. It's on the pricey side, so a family might want to avoid it unless it's a special treat.

You select a chocolate or vanilla base, add in as many tasty ingredients as you like, and they turn it into a soft-serve style cone or bowl! Delish!

There are 3 ice cream shops within walking distance and I would recommend you walk the distance. This place is very cluttered and seems dirty. They force regular ice cream through a sort of blender to soften it up and add a bunch of overpriced...More

This quaint little ice cream shop is really cool! You can mix just about anything you want into your ice cream to creat your own unique flavor. A cool place to rest after walking across the Walnut Street Bridge. And clean bathrooms!
