We were exhausted after a rigorous bike ride. This was the perfect spot to stop at after. Would recommend anyone to come here for a snack.

This spot is one of the best for ice cream. Love the Campfire S'mores flavor! One of my favorites. If there's a line it typically moves quick.

Have been coming to this ice cream shop since I was little. The selection is always fun and whimsical, but more importantly - DELICIOUS. Bring cash!

This is such a great place for ice cream, I am in love with their waffle cones, I wish I could bring them back with me to NYC! Delicious ice cream, good assortment of flavors, attentive girls, and outside seating, what else can you ask for?
