Great ice cream with many flavor choices. My favorite was the salted caramel. Fun place! People with peanut/nut allergies can't eat here. The staff was great about helping us figure out if our child with a nut allergy could eat here (No!)

This is a recently remodeled and charming ice cream shop. Indoor and outdoor seating is available and there is a nice line area to wait in. Parking was extremely tight!! They now offer breakfast on weekends. Ice cream is very good with many interesting flavors. It is certainly above average but not the best I've ever had. Price is a... More

This place was recommended by our server at Thai Basil restaurant, and we weren't disappointed. So many choices, and all looked delicious! Don't be turned off by the long lines as they move you thru very quickly and efficiently! This is highly recommended!

Had good ice cream deserts. Long line which moved quickly. Have someone in your group grab a table while you wait in line.Parking was cramped in the small lot.

It was a hot sunday afternoon and the place had a few guests in there. Two of my choices were not available and so I settled for something else. The place and the icecreams are both over hyped and over priced. I would much rather opt for the Dairy Bar at Cornell University which has some amazing ice cream.

This place was packed on a Saturday night! They had a pretty good system for dealing with the volume, though, so we didn't wait long even though the line was almost out the door. Lots of interesting menu items and great ice cream flavors. If only I had more room in my stomach to try more things! :)

This was the biggest ice creamshop I've ever seen. Don't let the lines scare you away. The wait was not bad & well organized. There was a great variety of goodies to enjoy. Advise sending someone to get seating while waiting for your order. Best ice cream venue I've ever been to.

Pure unadulterated pleasure. The choce is enormous, the quality is delux and the flavours are to die for. This is a must visit for all ice cream lovers, you cannot pass by without sampling the delights on offer here.
