“Sundaes for lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Yum! My husband and I shared an espresso escape sundae here - Espresso chip ice cream, whipped cream, and lots of hot fudge sauce...oh that fudge! Luckily, my husband allowed himself to be talked into upgrading to chocolate dipped waffle cone. Heaven. I don't understand the big deal about all the candy, as I can buy that at my local CVS, but the ice cream is another story!

“heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

Chocolate heaven. Walls and mounds of chocolate everywhere. Pretty cool to look at. Right as we walked in, one of the workers greeted us and offered us a sample. I think it was milk chocolate with caramel. It was really good. The workers were really nice and helpful. I didn't try the ice cream sundae this visit but the menu looks incredible. I might have to try it at the other location by the wharf though. And when you check in on yelp it offers you a $1 coupon off any sundae so that's cool

“Been waiting 15 years to return”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

I finished the entire sundae in about 3 minutes...nothing more to say. Except that it was a little embarrassing in front of my boss. But only a little because it was so good!!

The chocolate is fabulous, the ice cream delicious, and the service great. Eat dessert and then take some home for later.
