Yummy!

Nice, friendly lady working at the counter. Lots of ice cream choices. I went with a peanut butter cup one and it was very good! I love how generous the portions are in comparison to the low price. Very cute, cozy shop!

I went there yesterday with my husband and two daughters. One is 3 and one is 10 months. It was a very hot day and around 1pm. My 3 year old wanted ice cream and we wanted a place to eat inside that served soft serve ice cream. We wen in and were told that we were not allowed to... More

Thanks for your review... I take these reviews seriously, hence the numerous off-season changes that were made this past winter. Oddly enough, I dropped in @ 12:30 for about an hour to help out with the lunch crowd. During the lunch hours (11:00 - 2:00), we do try to keep the dining room somewhat open (especially if it's already packed,... More

Visited Harper's Ferry time and time again after falling in love with their custard. Needless to say I was extremely disappointed when I recently visited anticipating the vanilla custard only to learn that they were under new management and no longer carry the famous custard we have all grown to love. Formerly "Swiss Miss" now called "Cafe" Swiss Miss. Should... More

Hello, First and foremost, you we're not lied to...and I just happen to be sitting on the bench when you made your inquiry. I have been the owner for 5 years...and have not changed the soft serve mix...and contrary to lying or misleading people, had decided (with our remodel and menu revamp) to just call it soft serve (which is...

There were lots of people wandering around Harpers Ferry on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Stopping for ice cream sounded like a good idea. Swiss Miss seemed very unprepared. No toppings or sprinkles were available and the outside windows for ordering were closed. The ice cream was good, as always.

Good variety of ice cream flavors and generous portions! They serve both regular ice cream and frozen yogurt. Although they do offer streetside ordering, you can also sit inside.

Dear Owner I understand the need to have a place for your customers. But when a woman ( technically she is a senior citizen ) needs to sit for a moment, the right and moral thing to do is to let them sit. I hope people treat your parents better than you treated my Mother today.

Hi, I am truly sorry that your mom felt she was treated unkindly. Unfortunately though, our benches on the sidewalk are the only outside seating we have for our customers, so the benches are periodically watched by the employees. Rule of thumb... If it appears that someone is there more than just a moment and obviously not a customer, then... More

Busy little ice cream shop, always a line looking for refreshment. Hand dipped cones, lemonade and even hot cider when the summer temps are gone.

Just finished hiking and wanted a nice cool snack. It was a little after 4pm, so Swiss Miss told us the kitchen was closed, so we could not get the funnel cake fries. We asked if we could try some ice cream, and the girl working said they do not hand out samples. Ended up getting 1 soft serve cone,... More

I'm sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations. We have recently done a complete remodel of the space, our menu, and 'our hours'. Within the last 3 weeks, the grill and or a cup of coffee have been available until at least 6:00 pm - 7 days a week....unless you were possibly mistaken on the time of day.... More

My family and I were looking for a reasonably priced lunch spot and were so happy we came across this gem. The prices were a lot better than nearby restaurants and though we had to wait a minute for our food it was worth it! Made fresh for us and you could taste it, so yummy and the service was... More
