Flavours burst onto your tongue. No synthetic chemicals or fats just pure unadulterated old fashioned ice cream.

I went today with my family and I have a severe nut allergy so I usually can't eat ice cream but Fabio was very patient and helped me find all the nut free ice creams. The ice cream was amazing. Thank you

Everything about the place is telling you to slow down, take it easy and enjoy a little goodness every now and again in your life.
