Seriously it should be a crime to make a sundae this perfect! It's extremely busy so you will stand in line but it moved pretty fast. My daughter had one of the speciality drinks, can't remember the name but it was good. Me and her friend got the butterscotch and fudge sundae, OMG, heaven!! It was so rich we could... More

A bit on the expensive side but worth every bit, look at it as a special treat. Sit outside and they serve it to you. Hard to find a spot but just hang around someone is sure to finish up and leave.

A lovely special treat, these are great, especially on a very hot day! Lots to choose from. If you want to sit outside they are served in a plastic dish instead of glass dish.

The chocolate is delicious but not a big selection. Brownie is decadent. Expected more of a variety though.

You seriously have to go to this place at Downtown Disney. They have very simple cup and cone offerings, to out of this world sundaes! My personal favorite is their milkshakes. You can also sit there and enjoy at tables or take it on the go!

I have never come across the ghirardelli chocolates in England, and wish i had brought more home. The dark chocolate caramel with sea salt is my favourite, and also the mint creme. I wish i had gotten the chance to try the ice creams as they sound and look amazing!

I ordered a big Chocolate Milkshake to share and it was to die for, really good, rich and creamy. The staff was excellent and fun. My friend got an ice cream cone with one scoop that she couldn't even finish. It was all very good

The treats at this place are amazing. The only slight downside is that it is hard to find a place to sit and you usually end up walking around or sitting outside somewhere to eat.

I visited in October 2013 after someone at out hotel recommended this place. This is the best ice cream sundae I have ever had and nothing has compared to it since! I had the salted caramel sundae with milk chocolate fudge! Amazing! It was very busy even on a quiet day in downtown disney however the staff were efficient and... More

Icecream was very good. They were huge! I couldn't finish my scoop. The waffle cone was excellent. The price wasn't bad either, we paid 20 for4 ice creams
