Great food! Especially the BBQ and ice cream. They have a play room for the little ones. The whole place is neatly decorated

Stopped there for some ice cream and it was very good. We didn't try any of the food items but the menu looked great. Great place! Try it and you'll like it.

It's ok if you have kids that you want to get out and do something for an hour, but for my taste it's a little dirty and doesn't seem that well kept. Ice cream ok.

Great homemade ice cream. Many interesting flavors. The Key Lime was perfect for a hot Saturday! We love supporting independent establishments, and New Bern is so wonderful in featuring non-chain delicious establishments!

We went there for ice cream. We didn't have food so I can't comment about that, but the ice cream was great.

Not much to really add. Isn't all ice cream good? Nice place with good location. Tables to sit inside or out. Typical variety, shakes, cones, cups, splits. Skip desert and get some ice cream and stroll main street. It's great.

Had dinner and ice cream with my husband and 2 kids. The Cuban pork was tasty. Portions aren't huge and prices are a little high but the ice cream is worth every penny! Every kind we tried (7 between us!) was delicious and some very unique. The service was friendly as well. A good stop!

As we walked in the door, I said to my husband, "I"m in bovine heaven." Food was really good. The only downside was that there where a couple of almost-unruly kids.
