This little ice-cream shop downtown is great. The ice-cream is homemade in store, something that is hard to come by these days. I had the pumpkin which is one of the special flavors and it was so good I almost ordered another scoop before I left the store!

If you want fresh, flavorful, creamy ice cream you need look no further then Ellen's. This is homemade ice cream in several interesting favors. I couldn't decide so got 2 scoops.

Needed an after dinner treat and stopped here as a walk-by. Even at 830pm the place was very busy (they are open til 10pm in the summer), so that was a good sign. Staff was super friendly and let us try several flavors. The pumpkin was tasty, but I had to go with the old favorite - dutch chocolate. It... More

Need I say more? Really good. Friendly staff, clean, interesting flavors. On a tree lined Boulevard with shaded tables out front. Eat ice cream and watch the people go by. Near perfect.

Good homemade ice cream--not the best. They charged me a five percent surcharge to use my debit card.

Nothing special (and that's not necessarily a bad thing). Cute little place. No extravagant flavors. Ice cream was good.

A group of us had dinner at Pies and Pints (absolutely great pizza) across the street and stopped by here for dessert. What a great decision as this place had great tasty ice cream. It’s not cheap but it is high quality. I ordered a waffle cone with health and chocolate chip. Perfect combination. This place is very popular so... More

I have recently discovered the greatness of Capital Street. We had the Espresso Oreo ice cream and it was to die for. Not too chunky with a great espresso flavor. We will be back again!

Love their ice cream and food. Chocolate cherry amore is my favorite but it's all good? They are very busy so we usually buy a couple of quarts and bring them home. Terrific, easy dessert.
