“Bardon's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

After trying Moomer's at two locations (and being disappointed in both), our last night brought us to Bardon's Wonder Freeze Ice Cream stand. As you pass it on Front street outside the downtown area, it doesn't look like more than your run of the mill DQ type of place. However, it is definitely worth a stop. For one - they have both soft serve and hard ice creams here, so that pleases everyone. The kids tried the soft serve chocolate and were happy - I went with a scoop of cherry ice cream - it was wonderful...full of flavors and cherries. Prices are relatively inexpensive as well.

There is a small bench on the Front street side of the stand, but there is plenty of seating on the opposite side of the stand. Be sure to just sit and savor. Get's my vote over Moomer's for sure!

“Great soft serve”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

The ice cream is excellent here. Definitely worth the wait in the line, which can sometimes be very long.

Little dive with character and great ice cream. The flurries and dips are particularly good
