We went here after dinner one night. Weren't feeling like ice cream because it was a drizzly, chilly day, so we decided to try the cake.

Ah!! I love this place and I'm so sad I moved further away from it. Emack has the most amazing ice creams. There is a peppermint ice cream with Junior Mints in it. It's not that weird green fake stuff, it's pure white with chocolate mints in it and it's AWESOME. Try the crazy rice krispy treat cones too. YUM.... More

Great flavors and good prices overall. Very pleasant staff that will gladly give you samples. Great waffle cones and dense rich ice cream. I will go back on my next trip to Albany.

Had a coffee ice cream with chocolate covered espresso beans. Omg. If I could is have one every night. Way too small of a building though. Can't move if more than 10 people in line at the ice cream counter. Love music is not my thing but that was there too.

Awesome flavors of ice cream. Great atmosphere…looks like an ice cream shop you would find on vacation at a seashore town, and it has free live music shows on weekends!!!
