I had the 3 flavor sampler and my son had a two scoop cone. I was happy to be able to choose more than one flavor. However for the same price, he got WAY more ice cream than I did. All were yummy.

Tremendous selection of flavors of ice cream and gelato, with free samples. Great coffee too. But get there early, as the line gets longer as the day gets warmer!
