Good quality home made ice cream

I knew it had to be good, you could see the locals having their ice cream there. Had the Oreo ice cream -- very tasty and not over priced.

Long ago, I remember arguing with a friend about Ummm's logo. She thought it looked like "Yummm" which is not a problem, because their homemade ice cream is yummy. The main problem with Ummm's is that I can walk to it. At least I walk off the calories, eh?

We took our grandson there for ice cream. He wanted chocolate jimmies on his ice cream. Guess what....they don't have them! He got this tiny bowl of half melted ice cream with a few chocolate morsels on it for almost $4.00 Totally over priced! If it was for me I would have said forget it! We had our grandson so... More

We live in Burlington Township and hadn't visited the parlor in some time. It was a beautiful evening so my husband and son and I headed to Ummm's for ice cream. My son has severe food allergies . One of them being to eggs (the white & the yolk.) There were three teenagers working behind the counter. I asked one... More

Perhaps just because it was the end of the season. Sticky floors. Looks like it had a high-time in 2000, and has perhaps slid a little since then. Hasn't hurt the (great) quality of the ice cream any.

Tried 3 different flavors and they were all over frozen. Chunks of ice throughout. The place isn't that clean either.

Great place! Old-time feel and decor. Ice cream was very tasty and the homemade waffle cones were out of this world!

I have been going to this place for deacdes, since I was a child. It's a really cute spot and it always smells like warm waffle cones (which are delicious). It is my favorite ice cream partlor, and their homemade butter pecan is great!

Quaint little corner ice cream parlor with old fashioned decor. The banana ice cream was really awesome. But what really made it worth the trip was the freshly made waffle cones. Rich, vanilla-flavored crispy, crunchy, yumminess. I've had my share of disappointing waffle cones that tasted like stale, spongy cardboard. Not so here. For ice cream made in house, we... More
