I feel like I should keep this a secret

This is custard stand, in the old-fashioned sense of the phrase. The hand-dipped frozen custard is dense and delicious; they have the commercial-style swirled soft custard, but I don't know why anyone would buy that when they could have real frozen custard in plenty of delicious flavors.

A very run of the mill ice cream joint. No indoor seating....the place has a real local following, as it's been here forever, but the quality of the ice cream just isn't there. Better ice cream for same price available at Brusters and Leos.

This place just keeps getting better and better! I can't stay away! The custard is by far the best I've ever had; whether it's soft serve or hand dipped you can't go wrong. I seriously recomend trying it if you haven't yet because you're really missing out.
