Unfortunately, we didn't sample the ice cream because we were headed to dinner. We stopped in to inquire about a shop in the same center and the lady behind the counter was very friendly. She even suggested a few alternatives to what we were looking for. And the shop smelled. Like. Heaven. She was in the midst of making waffle... More

We stopped in around three in the afternoon in the mood for a cone, ended up ordering two "Hot Fudge Cake" sundaes both made with "Salted Carmel" ice cream. OH MY GAWD! Should have only ordered one and split it. They were huge and rich. When we walked in, the only people in there were the (I'm assuming) owner and... More

The ice cream is expensive, but it was very good. My husband and I both had sea salt caramel (I think that was the name) and it was so good! Ask for a sample!

As I was paying the worker answered the phone and was EXTREMELY rude to the person on the other end. I'm assuming they were calling to see if the shop was open because the worker responded "well obviously we are". If I had not already paid for my ice cream, I would've walked out right then. I let the fact... More

Enjoyed friendly service and great ice cream at 8:30 pm yesterday. The one scoop serving of coffee ice cream in a cup was more than enough for me😋
