Great ice cream. Salted caramel was excellent. Salt and sweet together. Not only had great ice cream but also got alot of information in local attractions. Recommend highly.

I hear this place had the best ice cream in Gettysburg so my family and myself decided to stop by. We got different flavors cones and one famous Sunday. Very large amount but the flavors are overbearing and the ice cream was old freezer burn (small piece of ice) very disappointed and shocked :(

Small place with lots of charactor. Open late for late night snacks, too! Nice variety of choices for the ice cream lover. We enjoyed the conversation with the girl who waited on us. She gave us ideas for things to do & see.

Out of the top three rated ice cream places we tried from this site, all of them were good but this was our favorite!

With my kids getting hungry again Sunset was a great choice to hit up before our ghost walk. Its a nice little shop,with a great selection of ice cream. Our order was up real fast,which counts with kids. The lady who took care of us was real friendly. We will be making our return to Sunset for sure.
