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.

Always a wait whether there is a long line or not and the price is always unpleasantly surprising. That aside, the location is good, ice cream is yum and ambiance is cool with fun seating.

As we were staring at all the delectable treats several employees cheerily offered to help us. The ice cream was fresh and delicious as was the sorbet. Quality place that is ever so slightly overpriced.

They have a very good selection and everyone is friendly. My wife and I enjoyed ice cream last Sunday. We ate it indoors. My chocolate was great and my wife had no complaints about her cone (forgot what it was). We will be repeat customers all summer. These people support the community so we will support them.

I like this place. It's cute and fun. I just think they should have more flavors. More variety. Also it's really overpriced. I would go here more if the prices were more reasonable. It's just too expensive so I almost never go. Great atmosphere though.

This ice cream store is adorable. When the weathers warm, there's usually a line of people waiting to get dessert. The atmosphere is very fun and funky. There are variety of tables in the back room to sit and eat. The walls have artwork done by local artists. We go there several times a year, and we often bring friends... More

I go for the best ice cream and end up also buying gifts for friends. They have cute packaged treats. My favorite is chocolate covered pretzels with sprinkles. Last time I also bought a Newtown Coffee Mug that I use everyday.
