Consistently Delicious Ice Cream for years and years. Some days the line is around the block. Excellent some swirl ice cream cones, best banana splits, floats. Never disappointed on flavor.

This is the best place in Troy to get both soft serve and hard ice cream. My. Favorite is the soft serve creamsiscle and their hot fudge sundae. My husban's favorites are black raspberry and pistachio hard ice cream. But be assured everything is delicious!!

This is a land mark in Albany. First time I went I ended up going twice in 1 day. The soft serve is the best I've ever had and the owner is there everyday greeting and serving everyone. A great local place.

Stopped by here after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. It was very busy for a Monday evening. We didn't really see anything special about the hand dipped ice cream. It was just OK. They do have a big following of what appears to be locals, so they must be doing something good! We would stop by again when in the... More

The best Ice Cream EVER. All home made and the choices, we'll leave yourself enough time to make your choice. They have hard and soft alike and something to help you stop drooling. This is the place for your favorite scoop. Go for it.
