I have never been to an ice cream shop quite like this. They have dozens of mix-ins that really transform the ice cream. I agree that it is a little expensive but the ice cream is quite good.

Multiple ice cream types (vegan, soft serve, frozen yogurt) was nice, as was the many mix-ins (fruits, nuts, candies). The wait was longer than similar style ice cream joints and the prices were crazy, an "adult" cup sets you back enough to buy an entire carton, tack on the mix-ins and we averaged $8 per adult and $6 per child,...

After a long day of walking around Chattanooga, this was a great place to sit and relax and enjoy a nice, cool soft served ice cream treat. You can sit inside or outside. The staff was friendly and helpful. With all the additives and toppings, they can make 17,000 combinations! Wow! I guess I need to make a few mire... More

These people are so nice! The ice cream is to die for! You can get any combination of topping blended into your ice cream that your heart desires. I love the smell of waffle cones when you walk in because they make them right inside. This time I tried something new.....ice-cream with a shot of espresso blended in....it was gone... More

They only have 2 flavors but with an unlimited number of mix-ins available- you have quite a variety. It's a little pricey as it cost our family of 5 over $30- but its quite good. They offer free wi-fi. The are very close to the end of the Walnut St Bridge and the long walk is a great excuse for... More

What a great concept. These guys have a machine that turns hard ice cream, with your choice of ingredients, into soft ice cream--yum. The fresh baked waffle cones are a nice bonus. The staff guided first-timers through the ordering process and were friendly and helpful. Great views of the Walnut street pedestrian bridge and the Hunter Art Museum. We liked... More

Delicious ice cream with a good variety of add-ins to choose from. I got mine in a waffle cone and it was yummy! We sat outside on the patio and it was very pleasant.

After walking the pedestrian bridge and market street, we stopped in for a treat. I was not impressed with the high prices, and the added charge for toppings is not explained, but it was the best darn strawberry/pecan ice cream I had ever eaten! Yum! My kids got m&m's, but theirs wasn't mixed fully, it ended up just vanilla in... More
