“Pick a Number, The Line is Long but the Result is Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

We have been there on two different trips and both times, EVERY night after dinner. We had to have the ice cream cones. Wow. They are freshly made all day and there are four different cones. The ice cream is different, there must be 30 different flavors.

Be forewarned. It cost some bucks for an ice cream cone. Three cones with one person have a double scoop = $16.50. But we keep going back. And if you pick a standard one like chocolate, be ready for them to run out about 8:00 PM. Now I have to chose chocolate cheesecake. Oh, what a problem.

Yes, you will gain weight if you are not smart and not continually go back. But....

“Terrific Ice Cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

My kids made it here a few times, I made it once. Ice cream worth the indulgence - Moo Henry was my favorite & I couldn't resist getting a Moomoolemon t-shirt!

“Walked past the line the 1st time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

Came back and the line looked somewhat reasonable.
If the line is big, get in line and be patient.
I don't know what's better the ice cream or the cones being made in front of you.
This is a great splurge. Worth the wait and $20 for 4 ice creams.
Enjoy! All 4 flavors were winners.

“Great ice cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Loved the ice cream. Don't let the long line turn you away. It moves very quickly with plenty of staff. Main reason for the long line is people not moving forward and ordering in a reasonable time. I suggest they put a list of the flavours at the door so people can pick before they get to the counter.

Great range of merchandise as well. Some funny tshirts.

“Yummy Ice Cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

One of the best places for ice cream we have ever been! We went for a snack and it ended up being dinner! Couldn't decide; every flavor was so tempting!
