Ice cream was outstanding. According to my friend the pistachio was world class. Comfortable seating both inside or on the outside deck. Open late until 11 pm. Enjoy!

Delicious ice cream with an excellent assortment of flavors. There were choices for everyone in our group. The service was pleasant, and it was a great to take a break from the heat.

The only reason this is not a 5 star shop is because sometimes the young people who are helping you don't place customer service as a high priority.

I recommend that you ask for samples because they are so many great flavors it is hard to pick just one. The chocolate sea salt was exceptional as were all the others we tried. I am sure you will want to visit them more than once. One of the best ice creams I have ever had.

Definitely try the key lime ice cream. Fantastic! Also, check out the door handle as you walk in. They have a nice porch to sit and enjoy the calories.

I'm not a huge ice cream fan, but this place is good. They make their own flavors on-site, and they change every couple of days. We didn't try the sorbet or fat-free froyo, but they have it too. I had something called Carmel Moose (vanilla ice cream with carmel ribbon and chocolate covered carmel cups....YUM), hubby had Black Rasberry. We... More

Hubby had the Cookie Monster, which is blue a strange color for food but very good. I had the Mexicali chocolate, wow, that has a kick...loved every bite.

On your next trip to Lenox do yourself a favor and stop in and get some of the best ice cream anywhere. They are happy to let you have a sample.The kids working there tend to be nice.

Their ice cream can be amazing, and the next time disappointing. We were just there and had the hazelnut which was loaded with huge chunks of ice. Not as creamy as it used to be. Cost cutting maybe.
