They have sugar free ice cream!

Being diabetic its nice to be able to get a bowl of ice creams and not worry too much about the sugar. This place is always busy in Summer and at other times too.

This is probably the best ice cream I have had in some time! Soft enough to eat well, and generous scoops to boot. Bring your dog! They give free ice cream for dogs, sometimes with a milk bone on top!

Every once in awhile I stop by Brewsters for a treat. It's the only place I know of where you can get a black raspberry ice cream cone. Yes they have young inexperienced help, yes it takes a while to get sometimes, but hey, you're there for a treat, relax and enjoy it.

Good ice cream and sundaes but pricey for what you get. Selection never consistent. Unless you want something specific, its cheaper to buy ice cream and toppings at a store and make yourself.

milkshakes are good but hard to get to due to other businesses. Staff is not swell trained in customer service, but they do make a good milkshake.

We stop at Brewster's quite often. I really only like their Double Chocolate Chunk and they are out of it too often but since they give my dogs "doggie sundae's" we continue to go. My husband really likes their shakes and malts and the staff is always clean and polite. There is a nice area with benches and another with... More
