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

This really was a great ice cream stop. Right at the foot of the pedestrian bridge, there are many choices. I actually went twice during my 5 day stay! The chocolate with peanut butter and pretzels was my absolute favorite. Reasonable prices too!

We walked from the Aquarium so we earned it. Its not really that far & its worth the trip. We passed other Ice Cream places to go here & We will do it again. They make it fresh including the Waffle cones. If you are in town you need to go. Its near the walking bridge

The other flavors are added. For example if you ask for chocolate with strawberries and butterfingers, they blend it all together and your ice cream looks multi colored.It... More

Not your typical ice cream shop. They start with a base flavor, and then you add the flavorings you would like to experiment with. We had the chocolate and added blueberry and black cherry. Best flavored ice cream ever. Nice quaint little place near the pedestrian bridge, but extremely busy; but that is because it is so good. Looking for... More

If you like ice cream don't leave Chattanooga without stopping by here. This was the best ice cream I have ever had. They have tons of flavors to mix and try.

A nice place at the end of the Walnut Street Bridge. Several Ice Cream choices but sodas/ bottled water also available. You will be looking for both on a hot day after walking the bridge!!
