This is one of the coolest Ice Cream places I've been to (no pun intended). It is small and vintage. Their service is outstanding. They have counter service with tables and chairs inside and out. And don't forget their ice cream. It is delicious with many flavors to chose from! This is a fun place to come for a date... More

My parents brought me here when I was young. I was on a trip and passed though Ogden I absolutely had to stop and get play dough ice cream!

Great ice cream served with a smile. Licorice ice cream is my personal favorite, but they are plenty of flavors to choose from. Don't worry about the crowd that always seems to be there - just take a number. The service has actually been very quick each time I have gone.

I have gone here since I was a little kid and it has always been so delicious! My favorite kinds of ice cream are chocolate peanut butter and raspberry cheesecake although I have not found a kind that I don't like. The facility is a bit small just because it has been there for so long and there isn't a... More

We have been here a handful of times- and the ice cream always been good and the selection is very VERY wide- so many choices! Prices are decent- $2.40 for a generous (and sufficient) single cone. The location is great for stopping by after visiting other local stops- close to the Junction (movies, irock, etc.), the Treehouse museum, and the... More

I like the old fashioned atmosphere of a soda shop with articles from days of yester-year. It is fun to explain to the grandchildren what some of the toys are and to let them enjoy the candies that I enjoyed as a child.

All the newfangled ice cream shops, and their fancy way of getting it done. Nothing beats the old fashioned goodness of this place , its selection and the people who work there because they want to ... not just to get a paycheck.
