Old fashioned ice cream shoppe

Two locations: the original on the downtown square, newer location on Wind River. Both have great ice cream treats; downtown location more of a throwback to old-timely ice cream shoppes. You will love the ice cream at both locations. Fun atmosphere and friendly service.

The store is old fashion zone atmosphere was great. The servers were so sweet. Ice cream is great with many to choose from, plus you choose your cone to eat out of from the counter. Great experience.

From the location in downtown Denton on the square and the jukebox in the dining area, eating ice cream at the marble soda fountain is like being back in the 50's. I ordered a diet coke and it was hand made. The taste was much smoother than it is from a can or drive thru. There are so many flavors... More

This is a fantastic ice cream parlor and sandwich shop (serve lunch till 4:00). Fantastic flavors and reasonably priced. My favorite is the warm peach cobbler with a huge scoop of vanilla on top. Perfect location on the Denton City Square. Grab a homemade waffle cone and cross the street to enjoy the shade of the old Denton Court House.

This is the best ice cream in Texas. A lot of homemade Flavors and sherbets too. Floats, sundaes, old fashioned soda fountain drinks, and the whole place smells like homemade waffle cones and fresh baked cookies. We LOVED IT!

On a rainy day in Denton to visit a friend, we hit More Fun comics, Atomic Candy, and then moseyed by Beth Marie's. The lovely smell of waffle cone hit us at the door. I had Turtle Torture and my boyfriend had a root beer float. The service was super friendly. We were able to sit at a table and... More

I was walking the Denton Square and had to stop in here. I tried several flavors, all wonderful, before settling on the cupcake. Also tried the fresh waffle cones, made in front of me. Very yummy and perfect for a stroll around the square.

Some of the best ice cream and an awesome environment for couples on the square. Walk around the square and go to Beth's!
