The place has gritty charm and a ring of authenticity. It looks like the real thing as far as home made ice cream. It's popular and worth a stop just for the atmosphere. But I found the ice cream almost cloying rich and sweet. Also the flavors were a bit bizarre. It's great to have a place like this to... More

This place is a new mecca for ice cream. Locally made and very reasonably priced. The ability to sit in the air conditioned shop and eat it and not be dispatched out into the July heat once purchasing your cone meant it lasted all the longer with no drips down your hand.

Small shop, but all the ice cream is made on premises as well as waffle cones. The also offer hand mix-ins, sundaes, floats, etc. There weren't a huge number of flavor options. Enough, but maybe just two or three more varied choices would have satisfied my wants. For example, there were two peanut butter options of the 16 flavors. Not... More

I've been coming here since they opened in '83 and have never been disappointed. 30+ yrs of DELICIOUS! Great HOMEMADE flavors & cones, and divine smells in a clean, fun shop with good service. Truly one of PGH's TREASURES! Buck the chains, go LOCAL!

All the ice cream is made on site, with a variety of flavors and options to choose from. I got the salted caramel in a waffle cone and it was great! You can also watch them make the waffle cones, an experience my 3.5 year old enjoyed.

What can I say? Delicious ice cream every time, and a great local experience. Waffle cones are the most amazing, but a kids cup topped with hot fudge is also the perfect treat. Yum.

I have been eating here for years and just took my kids for the first time. They also fell in love with it too. They have the best home made waffle cones and the most delicious home made ice cream. The delicious smell engulfs you when you walk in. The staff are always happy and personable. Love it!
