“Excellent value!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Good selection of ice cream.
Would have liked to see a few gelato items, though.
The single-scoop is the largest I've seen -- more than enough for me!

“Great selection and generous servings!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Title says it all - you can't really screw up ice cream when it's 25-30 degrees celsius! Be warned though, a single scoop is more like 3 scoops!

“Hot day, great ice cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Definate stop here, especially on a hot day. Many people enjoying ice cream and portions were very adequate and love the sugar cones.
