Ice cream here has always been fantastic. The service needs to improve in a big way! No be ever smiles behind that counter. I mean never! Ice cream usually makes people smile and be happy, not here. Not sure what that's about as its been this way for years......... Ice cream is definitely yummy.

So glad you've been enjoying our ice cream, Christina! The service should always be on par with it, and it's honestly surprising to hear it's been anything other than friendly. I'll be following up with the team and am confident your frozen treats will be served with a smile from now on. That said, I hope we'll be seeing you... More

I was expecting more. Milkshake sux. Crowded in the weekend. Terrible staff, I was there for about 1 hour and not even a smile or telling something good for guests. Terrible to park.

You should never receive anything other than friendly and attentive service here, Rafael, and I'm so sorry that wasn't the case recently. The quality of our ice cream and service is something we're extremely attentive to, and it's honestly surprising to hear that didn't shine through. There's nothing we want more than for you to walk out happy, so we... More

This is the place to be if you want to hang out with friends and grab a sweet treat. I love that it's so close to the movie theater. The ice cream is excellent. They have a large selection of everyday flavors and they also offer seasonal specialties as well. So there's always something new to try.

Very good ice cream but not excellent for the prices. Definitely a novelty stop as a once in a while treat. Prices are high. Would recommend treating yourself to this lovely little ice cream shop.
