Crowded, but well worth the wait! Great flavors. The Dutch chocolate is recommended for any chocoholic out there!

This is where we go for ice cream. We live in Lewes, like dining down town Lewes, and we'll stop here afterwards.

Cute shop. Had a very good strawberry and mint chip sundae. I was surprised they didn't offer more flavors.
