It maybe slightly more money than May's or Turkey Hill but OMG does it taste better, nothing else even comes close!!! Sometimes there is a line but it moves fast and is worth... More

Very expensive and you don't get very much at all usually have to stand in a large line .it's cheaper to go to turkey hill and buy some there.what they consider a large is more like a small , guess it's OK for people trying to count calories or diet.

best ice cream place around, you have to try their cherry Italian ice, it has bits of real cherries in it, their ice cream is so cream it is just like the old time custard.

I never had Italian ice so good. We were at other ice cream shops from New England to Georgia and Pepe's stands out as one of the best. Homemade hard ice cream was great too.
