“Birthday cake ice cream=AMAZING ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2014

Not sure what "nothing special" was talking about, but I just had the birthday cake ice cream and every spoonful had at least three big chunks of cake. It was full of cake and very yummy!! Very sad that this is Labor Day weekend and we have to wait for next summer to get this wonderful ice cream again!!

“Not on the boardwalk, but worth finding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

Definitely the best ice cream in OC! Large selection of hard and soft-serve, sundaes and other treats. Kids love to sit on the carousel horse outside!

“I've had better”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

This was an ok ice cream parlor. I wasn't too amazed with their options. Their times are convenient though. It made an after dinner treat. It was no better than any other ice cream parlor we have been to this week. Plus the line was crazy with no organization. With that line frankly I was disappointed with their flavors.

“The ice cream is great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

They have a great selection of ice cream and a good selection of sundaes loaded with your choice of toppings. My wife ate the whole thing! The service was personal. You feel they are creating something special for you. The chocolate covered pretzels are awsome for dipping into your ice cream. The painted horse out front makes for some good photos too. Will be stopping in again when we are in the area, for sure.
P.S. They have a parking lot!

“Good family ice cream shop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

Lots of different flavors and toppings to choose from. Some soft serve available also. Mint chocolate chip was very good, and others in our party enjoyed their flavors. Dining area decorated with a few painted carousel horses, fun for kids to look at. Overall great ice cream.
