Stopped here after finishing our ride on the Creeper Trail. They have plenty of bicycle parking and many picnic benches. We had a nice cone and relaxed while watching everyone else come back from their rides.

This is a wonderful place to sit and rest after getting off the Creeper! The staff is nice and the place is very quite even on a main road.

Stopped by for a cold ice cream on a hot day. Ice cream is great with lots of offbeat flavors like Salted Carmel bananas foster, and Cheesecake caramel cookie monster crunch. Highly recommended. Go soon, as they are retiring and it may not be there...More

We visited here several times during our stay in Damascus for dessert after dinner with our family. The banana split was my favorite. Tasty, an excellent value, and perfect for sharing.
