Sorry, but I compare this shop to Ivanacone in Lincoln, NE, USA, and it is a weak second.
Ice cream is good. But shop is laid out to sell stuff more than ice cream, such that even if there was sufficient staff (we were in twice and staffing marginal both times), it would be difficult to serve more efficiently.
Ice cream selections are good, but not truly creative. Do be prepared for a cost that rivals Ben and Jerry's in major airports.
Most of all, The waffle cones are not being made fresh, which makes all the difference in the world-- the smell alone would transform the experience.
