Very good ice cream - and servers!

After having worked at an ice cream shop through high school (one where the boss made everything from scratch), I have found myself becoming something of an ice cream snob!

Our family went there in June. We were so pleased with our visit. Not only was the ice cream delicious, but there was plenty of choices. The service was phenomenal, we will definitely be going there on our next visit.

Not a chain parlor, no flavor profiles to rock your world...but a nice local shop with lots of flavors, reasonable prices and very pleasant service. Loved it.

Tess that owns the Brickhouse Inn also owns the Sunset Ice Cream and gives a discount if you show your room key. They give you so much. We ask for a small and it was huge. It was so delicious and the staff was really nice. We loved it.

The girls working here were very pleasant. The ice cream was good but I don't think there is such thing as bad ice cream. I gave it a excellent because of the girls working there helping us were friendly and patient. You need patience when dealing with tourists and they were pleasant. Selection of flavors was great.
