Locally owned. Great little ice cream shop with a great selection of hand dipped ice cream. Sandwiches are available. The chicken salad is my favorite. Busy during summer vacation. Fast friendly service.

This is a great little ice cream and sandwich shop in downtown Florence Alabama. Love the chicken salad and ham sandwich. Can't leave without getting their hand dipped ice cream. Famous for their pineapple orange sherbet.

A downtown Florence landmark! This little café is hidden among the variety of shops in the downtown area, and can be easily overlooked. We've eaten here several times, and the quality is consistent. It's small, and a tight squeeze getting in & out, but well...More
