We went to the ice cream shop. I got a peppermint glacier. Yum Yum. Really good. No seating but a great place for ice cream.

We stop by for ice cream and specialty coffee drinks regularly and have never had a bad experience. Everything that we have ordered has been delicious and the staff is always fun. I highly recommend this place for anyone visiting the Benson area!

Not only was it a cute little ice cream shop, but they serve some amazing ice cream too! There are so many to choose from but everyone of them is great! The staff is usually friendly but of course you'll get one or two who aren't.

Stopped after spending a day in a Tombstone. We went through the drive thru & was greeted by a friendly young lady and given quick service. We both ordered glaciers, one Reese's peanut butter and the other strawberry, coconut, cheesecake and both were delicious! They were better than a DQ blizzard any day! Recommend a stop here if driving through... More

They have a nice variety of flavors and they're reasonably priced. I didn't try the food, but the ice cream was great.
