Gluten free cone

The ice cream is nice and tastes very rich. The place has a nice feel to it. They also have gluten free ice cream cone which is special. Normally I'd give it a three but since it caters to gluten free folks it gets four stars.

We were a group of seven Gold Wingers and planned the route so we could have the desert here after we ate lunch in Woodland Park! The ice cream is ALWAYS good and the service fast and friendly. Rum Raisin was a new flavor for me and it joined Butter pecan for a scrumptious cone! I wish folks would review... More

The ice cream is really the star of the show here. They do have kitchen capabilities, the cup of chili I had was tasty and the sandwich adequate, but they are really just vehicles to make you feel as though you ate something remotely healthy before indulging in the excellent ice cream. Go for the ice cream, don't expect too... More

This has a quaint small-town feel with top-notch ice cream. Favorites are peppermint stick, mocha, raspberry chip and they even have fresh, delicious gluten-free cones! Good prices and friendly staff.

We love the small town setting, with a wonderful friendly staff and a great selection of ice cream treats! We ahve loved this place since moving into the area in 1999, and have even gotten gift certificates to the Rock House for my wife's 20 piano students!

You go here for the ice cream. It has kitchen capabilities for sandwiches and love the tuna salad salad. First they make tuna salad and put it on top of a lettuce salad. There are gifts in the back room.

Great little ice cream shop (locally owned) that has been in Palmer Lake forever. So much fun to go there in the summer. They also serve some lunch items. Friendly service.

The kids like to take a walk down to this place and grab some ice cream while we are hanging out at O'Malleys. My son's favorite ice cream is the cookie dough. Definitely great for the fam!

I love supporting local places but I had been here twice & the food is just cheap & gross. I am more of an organic, non-GMO kind of person & this place is more like fast food with a better atmosphere. I don't even think the ice cream is good. Wish I could give this local place a better review.

A nice selection of ice creams and some lunch foods too (soup, hot dogs, etc.). Good service and it's nice to find a local business to support instead of another chain restaurant.
