Over the past few years, I've always stopped by Buddy's for a quick bit of ice cream. Their ice cream is pretty creamy and gets the job done.

This was my first visit to the new Buddys Icecream and it did not disappoint. The service, free wifi, the tasty food, the friendly staff and the location have certainly cemented Buddys as the place to go for a 'taste of home'. The local cuisine is also delectable and as always, the owners are happy to offer great info, maps... More
