“Huge cones!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

If you are looking for a sweet treat in a quaint spot, this is it. The small cones come with two scoops. Four of us got what we want for less than $15. The chocolate peanut butter had huge chunks of real PB in it--delish!

“Great selection of premium ice cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

The servers are always friendly here and the ice cream is one of the better options around. Try the Graham Central Station - graham cracker ice cream with chocolate chunks and pieces of chocolate covered graham cracker - one of the best ice cream flavor I've ever had.

My husband and I have stopped here, and enjoyed a real treat. They have delicious flavors, and generous portions. If you love ice cream, this is the place worth waiting in line

“Great ice cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

We live in town and stop by there often and sit outdoors under the big shade tree and enjoy their delicious ice cream. It's fun to sit and watch the world go by. Great little place. Next to a small mall with Starbucks, Subway, great jewelry store - Sarah's, nice gift shop, and florist. Also Metro Bis.

Love their ice cream.

“No heavy after taste”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Great ice cream without that heavy cream film that coats your mouth that you get with too heavy ice creams.
