My husband and I visited this place while spending the day in Asheville with our 3yr old daughter. She got mint chocolate and it was tasty. My husband got the maple bacon...surprisingly it was better than I expected. But I got the chocolate chip cookie dough and in my whole bowl there was one tiny piece of cookie dough. I... More

I love ice cream, and consider myself to be somewhat of a connoisseur of sorts. All of the staff at all of the locations are super friendly and sweet. I've never had a flavor I don't like. Some of my favorites are the bacon and maple, the moon pie, and chai. You can't go wrong with any flavors in one... More

Found . this great little ice cream shop by accident. Nice selection of ice cream flavors. We had the maple walnut and bavarian dark chocolate, both delicious. Not a lot of seating, but there are some benches outside in the shade. Prices are a little high, but this is premium ice cream, rich and creamy.

The ice cream was good and the service was great. I liked the fact that they make their own ice cream and waffle cones. It was my first time eating sea salt caramel, and it was good. I've since then tried the same flavor ice cream by other brands (store bought) that don't taste as good.

We went to this place hoping for some great ice cream, but the flavors were "hipster." If you're looking for a Ben & Jerry's or Cold Stone vibe, this is not the place for you. Everyone in the place was granola and we felt very out of place. One of the people behind the counter told a customer that they... More

Four of us went for ice cream and 3 loved it! I got vegan peanut butter ice cream that was creamy and delicious. My daughter got lime sorbet that she didn't like but I thought it was yummy. Lots of offbeat flavors (cherry goat cheese!).

I was craving ice cream, so we looked up the best ones on TA. This one was on the way back to our hotel, and easy to get to. We sampled about six flavors before settling on three. We loved that they listed the farms and dairies where they get their local ingredients. Every flavor tasted fresh and unique. We... More

If you want exotic ice cream taste in Asheville, NC then visit the Ultimate Ice Cream shop located in East Asheville, on East Tunnel Road near the VA Hospital. Unique flavors, smooth variety of great ice cream flavors and excellent service and price. Must to do things in Asheville, during your visit.
