Good ice cream, good service. We tried cotton candy and party cake. They were both very good. They have many flavors to choose from. It is a cash only place and a small was about $4.30 with tax.

We tried the Ice Cream Place for dessert last night while in town. The ice cream flavors are unique. I did get a pastry and was not thrilled with it. But they returned it and I got another one instead that was much fresdher!

Hidden gem just off the main road, line was fairly long but moved quick. Ice cream was delicious. We had waffle cones that were freshly made there but no warm when served. Servings were large, we come back here every year! It is Cash only

I ordered a sundae inside of a waffle cone and it was one of the best ice creams I've ever had. The homemade whipped cream was divine. I will def. return at my next visit!

The small size serving was actually fairly large. They have waffle cones, but we opted for a sugar cone. You can eat the ice cream inside or sit at one of the outside tables.
