Not just your regular ice cream shop. This one is in a historical building/player piano and charm

Fun atmosphere, friendly service, good ice cream! It feels good to have great food and know that you are supporting a non profit agency.

Adorable little shop for ice cream and snacks. Outside tables. Cool to learn it's owned & operated by a non-profit serving adults with developmental disabilities.

A must go! Great local business with some homemade desserts and some awesome ice cream. Prices are reasonable and the service is good. Indoor and outdoor seating available. One of my favorite spots.

Popular place with local families and travellers passing through. Across the street from Hotel Oregon. Ice cream is good. There is more than ice cream, too.

Service was very good, and ice cream was good, like a 8 out of 10. Nothing special, but its not bad. Thought the shop was really cute, and liked seeing all the different things inside. They have a few retro soda bottles.

They have wonderful no sugar added ice cream! The black cherry cream is especially good. There is at least one other flavor of no sugar added ice cream. I can not remember what it is at the moment.

We had just finished a very nice and enjoyable dinner next door at Thistle during an unusually hot spell, but decided to skip dessert at the non air conditioned restaurant in favor of something a little colder.

It was a hot day in July and we had just finished dinner at Thistle. We just made it in before closing but the people were more than welcoming. As we enjoyed some very tasty and unusual offerings we all talked about what to see and do in the area and as we were leaving they gave us 'end of... More
