Ice cream was great although we prefer to be able to see the flavors to help us make our choices. Nice clean, modern decor but bit of an odd smell, presumably from the nail salon next door.

I thought the interior of this place could be done a little better for the neighborhood. Very trendy shopping and dining district, and I just found this ice cream shop to be "plain." I don't eat dairy, so I had lime sorbet, which was fine, but nothing special. Others had ice cream and espresso shakes and said they were very... More

Great different flavors of ice cream. You can go either with friends, partner and family. A local place at VA.

I don't see what is so special about their ice cream. I found the taste to be bland and likewise for the texture. I had a small kids cup and it was over 3 dollars! I have paid more for ice cream, but it was a special kind of ice cream or gelato. The employees were nice and helpful, but... More

It's an ice cream shop. Go in, order, and go back outside. No the inside isn't fancy, but it's certainly cute and the ice cream was absolutely fantastic, well above average. It was easy to tell it was homemade ice cream, it didn't have funky colors or crazy artificial flavors- for example, the strawberry had pieces of strawberry in it... More

We can't do this every weekend. The selection is always fresh the ice cream is delicious. Be cool and stay patient and you look like a regular. Be nervous grab up a ttable and you look like a suburbanite

There was no air conditioning and it was 95 outside. The ice cream was average but the service was great. The building is severely neglected- with cracked glass and counters in ill-repair. It was once an award winning ice cream establishment. Unfortunately, one that I will pass by next time.

Fantastic little ice cream parlor on Grace St. The line can be daunting on the weekends, but it's completely worth the wait!

We had 18 people in our group when we invaded this tiny ice cream shop. Only 1 young lady was working the counter, but she handled it well. She moved along at an admirable pace. The ice cream was amazing, the selection was pretty good for a tiny place with home made items and everyone left very happy. We'll keep... More

The ice cream is wonderful - like no other. It's smooth and tasty with generous sizes. You can get a cone and then walk around the shops and window shop (until your ice cream is done). Be sure you don't miss the daily ice cream specials (there was honey, fig and coffee heath the day I visited!). My only issue... More
