Enjoy a delicious ice cream cone!

De-licious ice cream! An excellent choice for good old-fashioned ice cream in a cone or dish! They have a good selection of flavors and the staff is friendly

I have to give it a 1 star. My 4 year old needed to use the bathroom very badly and they wouldn't let him use their employee rest room. What kind of establishment is that mean to a small child who is standing there squeezing his legs together? An establishment I won't visit again or recommend. They are also pricey.... More

We managed to have ice cream here once and were the only customers. No place to sit. Now we never find it open. The neon is lit, but there is a "closed" sign on the door every time we pass. They need to clue us in! What's up, folks? Are you closed forever? If not, when are you open? We've... More

A small root beer float was 3 scoops and a full can of root beer. For $4 this seems pretty reasonable to me! Tasted delicious and the atmosphere of the place was super cute! Loved the Easter displays in the windows!

An overpriced way of experiencing America's favorite desert. Look elsewhere for better taste, better service, better selection. If this place keeps paying the rent I'll be amazed.

As she was not feeling the best after our dinner, she just had some of my rum raisin ice cream. Order it in a cup. Prices are reasonable... More
