Stopped by for an afternoon ice cream snack while driving the ring road. It was in a waffle cone and delicious. A nice bonus was that they put a few whooper type candies in the bottom of the cone. They had milk and dark chocolate...More

Reasonably good place for ice creams. Had my favorite coconut shavings, so can’t be that bad! Owner was friendly and helpful and patient!

Long lines, wide variety of toppings! Saw other customers holding large cups of ice cream- wasn’t sure what it was called so i asked the nice girl serving and she explained it to me. Delish! Must visit if you’re in town!

Soft ice cream and just right next to our airbnb, so its convenient. We went at 9pm and still lots people in line for ice cream. The ice cream is huge but a bit watery, the cream does not taste the same as our country...More
