We stopped here after dinner for ice cream. It was SO good! There were a lot of flavors to choose from. The guy who owns it is very sweet as well.

Hershey's ice cream is always a winner. Several types of cones to choose from. VERY friendly service. Wish they had offered hot fudge.

A few options to satisfy your sweet tooth. We enjoyed the ice cream. They have both indoor and outdoor seating and it is right across from the movie theater downtown.
