We stopped there for ice cream every single night of our stay. Don't let the (well-deserved) lines put you off: Service was speedy and friendly.

My family and I have gone to soco for years. We have usually received good service and we loved the ice cream. However, the last few times we have gone it has been terrible. We have gone twice in the last 2 weeks. It was dirty and the service was terrible. They took way too long making milkshakes and helping... More

When looking for an ice cream place in GB, stumbled upon SOCO. Place was trendy and crowded with a very small seating area. Very long line that went to the back of the store but it moved quickly. Service was SO SO, as expected with college kids these days, but the ice cream was really good. I had the mint... More

My husband has long been a fan of the (formerly amazing) Dirty Chocolate. The last two times we went there, he got "just plain chocolate"- no ingredients whatsoever, and not that rich dark chocolate that we usually love. Not sure if this is a quality control issue, or if the servers don't know which flavor is which.

If you like chocolate, dirty chocolate flavour is a must. Husband's fav. I am the mocha almond fan. Excellent ice cream, creamy, dense and divine. Service slow or non-existent at times. Almost always a line in summer, but I'd be surprised if there weren't. Defiantly worth the drive to GB or waiting in line for.

Love this ice cream. The flavor a are terrific. My favorite is the salty caramel. The vanilla gelato is also excellent with lots of vanilla beads. Dirty chocolate also pretty good..extra creamy and very deep chocolate flavor.

I called in to have an ice cream as a treat. It was a special little thing for me to enjoy by myself for all my hard work at the gym. A nice young guy greeted me and went to serve me before being over ruled by a surly woman who was totally uninterested or unable to offer a good... More

Flavors change every day. The ice cream was first rate. One thing that I was not crazy about was the plastic spoons that they have bend quite easily and makes eating the ice cream very difficult. One way around this issue is to get a cone.

I don't see what is such a big deal about this creamery. Ice cream taste is OK. As for the service, by the mid they on Sun they ran out of the most interesting flavors, as if weekend took them by surprise.
