Exotic flavors. My personal favorite is the cheese cake which I sometimes combine with they blueberry flavor. If you can’t decide what to get, ask for the split decision. Bring check or cash because they don’t take plastic.

I love the unique flavors they offer here. You'd think a "basil" ice cream would be gross, but it was just the opposite! I love trying the weird flavors because they usually are the best! It's a fun family friendly atmosphere too. The only downside...More

Home Made Ice Cream with no additives served to go or to stay in a lively, young atmosphere. Friendly, competent staff. Fabulous flavors - the old stand-bys plus some exotic experiments. Try the Burnt Sugar, if it's on offer.

Take your favorite ice cream home with you. Their flavors change often. The names of the flavors are creative and so are the flavor combinations. Expect to stand in line for a few minutes because they are busy.
