FABULOUS ice cream and gelato! We stopped in after lunch just to peek and the guy behind the counter was incredibly helpful and friendly. I really enjoyed that he seemed to be genuinely interested in the customers. The environment would be great for reading or studying, too. My boyfriend had the Salted Caramel gelato and I had the Banana Cashew... More

These guys have a must try Gelato. Every flavor I've tried so far i have been impressed with. I would definitely recommend either of the chocolate flavors, each very delicious. Will definitely come back next time I'm craving something sweet!

I was in the neighborhood and dying for a root beer float. I wanted what I remembered from my childhood (a zillion years ago). I got plain vanilla ice cream and they gave me a can of A&W root beer. It was WONDERFUL! The ice cream was hard and creamy and had a great vanilla flavor. The root beer with... More

We are just finishing up a 3 month, 8,000 mile trip around the US. 22 states, and one stop in Ontario Canada. We sampled ice cream where ever we went, searching for the best. No grocery store cartons for us. And forget Coldstone - not very good and very expensive. Glacier is great. Excellent flavors, excellent mouth feel. Decadent. Go... More

Gave this a try and was very pleased with how delicious the ice cream was. The atmosphere is cozy with plenty of seating and it wasn't too pricey for a family of 3. They also offer a military discount if you ask.

Our friends introduced us to this place because they love it, so we went there with them on a Friday night. I like the atmosphere because there are plenty of places to sit inside and outside when most ice cream places are small with little seating. I also like that there are plenty of flavors of both gelato and ice... More

There was a long line and only 2 employees. The one who helped us was kind of rude. The gelato wasn't anything too special. It was overpriced if you ask me.

Thoroughly enjoy the gelato. This shop has many choices for both gelato and ice cream. All flavors of the gelato I tried have been excellent with flavor plus! The staff is friendly and there is plenty of seating for a eatery of this nature. Highly recommend a visit. Have been here several times.
