Great ice cream place

Just a fun place for ice cream. All kinds of treats, friendly people, and high quality. We went there every day for a week.

We've been here twice on our vacation! It has been hot and humid in Eureka Springs. This is a great place to cool off with cold drinks, ice cream or floats! Clean, charming and friendly! Highly recommended!

The girls serving here are super friendly and helpful! They served Yarnell's ice cream when we were there (an Arkansas company). They also have delicious apple dumplings just like are served at Silver Dollar City! That was SUPER cool to find!

The girls that worked there were sweet and friendly! The ice cream hit the spot on a hot evening! The whole seating area was clean and there was even some gourmet snacks to take along with you if you chose!

Only issue we had was one staff member was rude, but the Ice Cream was great and we enjoyed our visit otherwise.

We went after attending the passion play. The staff was friendly and the homemade waffle cones and the apple dumplings were great. Recommend this to anyone.
