I went back on a trip in September 2016 and it was gone. I think there might be other locations. There is a Cold Stone across the street if you need ice cream.

Some of the best ice cream in Tucson. Love this place, and it is very close to The University of Arizona.

This is a traditional ice cream place. It is more like Baskin & Robbins that home made gelato. Okay but I would definitely hit up Allegro Gelato before going to this place again.

I had the pineapple coconut on a chocolate dipped waffle cone! It was the best ice cream I have ever had!

The best ice cream I've ever had, mainly due to the service I received. Walk in and feel refreshed, sit outside and watch the traffic go by. Bring a friend; it's worth it!!

Good ice cream, local people and a treat to be tasted! I especially like that this establishment has been a Tucson eatery local run by family. You won't be disappointed!

Lots of flavors to choose from and friendly owner/staff. Very convenient location to the stadium and other activities. When you need something sweet, this is the place to be.

The huckleberry ice cream feels like I am in the northwest. The espresso chip is another great choice. A pleasing ice cream parlor that is close to the university.
