Daughter loved her ice cream and I really enjoyed my spicy hot chocolate. Only problem was trouble getting a table but we snagged one with our coats while we were on line so it was ok.

We were walking by when we kept seeing people coming out with ice cream cones or bowls making heavenly happy sounds so we turned around and went in. They were sold out of cookie, cookie dough but the extra chocolatey (can't remember the name) and some kind of cake ice cream were both delicious. Fully lived up to all the happy sounds that attracted us.

Great selection of quality ice cream made with quality ingredients. Flavor selection changes periodically. Always busy, but worth the wait.

I'm not really sure what there is to review here. It's ice cream, okay?

Yes, it's good ice cream. Yes, there's a wide selection of flavors. Yes, the staff are courteous, efficient, and perky. Yes, kids are very welcome (hot tip: if you're running an ice cream shop, don't be nasty to kids).

But in the end, it's an ice cream shop.

The main reason this place does such a roaring trade, if we get right down to it, is that this part of Coolidge Corner has a toy store, a Gap (including Gap Kids), and the amazing movie theater. So you take your kids shopping for birthday presents and clothes, give them pizza at Otto's or whatever, and then you round out the evening with ice cream. Since it tastes great, how can you go wrong?

That said, be careful: it's not cheap. If you're not feeling piggish, go with the smallest possible size, which I believe is now called "baby" size. It's considerable, and it's WAY cheaper than what happens when you get into the normal sizes.
