Fantastic ice cream and friendly service. One suggestion. More variety of flavors would be nice. But I guess that just shows how often we go.

Cute theme, great for kids. Cozy environment but with lines so long it's hard to appreciate. The ice cream is good but they definitely need more variety. They should rotate flavors. They never have raspberry or pralines and cream which are my favorite. A little overpriced too, especially milkshakes at 5.95 a pop for a small. Worth a visit if... More

I stopped in here while waiting for my take-out food. I got a shake and was disappointed that I didn't get the bigger one. It was very good!! I hope to stop in again the next time I am in the area.

Sometimes it gets really busy here and it's too hectic. Overall however it's a great place for ice cream and crepes.

ZSW is a local ice cream place that is just adorable. We go there with friends pretty frequently. The ice cream is delicious, there are many flavors and options to choose from, an enormous array of diverse toppings, and it's a fun, cozy place to hang out, with couches and scattered tables and chairs. It's a great place to stop... More

Local spot for homemade ice cream. Perfect for an after dinner treat. Get your ice cream with all the fixings, then stroll while you eat up and down State Street.

The place is VERY cute, probably why I am giving it 4 stars. Its cozy and colorful and kids love it. They have great selection of pretty overpriced treats. The prices match everything else in Newtown so they are not shocking. We got three kids size ice creams with no cones and two chocolate covered pretzels for $20. The ice... More

Not much to say that hasn't been said. Ice cream is tasty—best in town—but pricey. Almost always a line. You can also get crepes made to order while you watch. Wi-fi available, though finding a seat can be a problem at times. Great for kids, but if you are on a budget, consider a visit for special outings only.
