This is a fun little shop with locally sourced milk and ice cream made on site. I had the zucchini brownie with a scoop of chocolate chip ice cream. I'm sure it was a seasonal specialty as the sign was hand written. They also have a great looking sandwich menu and sherbets and sorbets.

We only came for ice cream, but I was surprised at all the other food on the menu. We all had different ice cream and everyone liked what they had. There was a large selection of flavors. The service was quick and friendly. I would not hesitate to come back here and would certainly keep it in mind for lunch.

I had seen the high ratings, but this restaurant was a pleasant surprise. The sandwiches were excellent - large, fresh, home-made. I eat Reubens at most any sandwich shop I go to and the one I had here is a top 1% sandwich. The meat and kraut were piled high, the cheese was thick and the sauce had a zing.... More

You can definitely taste that this is homemade ice cream. It is a little on the expensive side, but worth every penny! All the flavors we have tried are excellent.
