Visited again on the 1st and 25th days of the Big 2016 Road Trip. Our son loves the eggnog ice cream (year-round!), while the rest of the family loves the 'glaciers' and twist cones. And the staff is always cheerful and friendly. Great place!

Located in the centre of town, This is a very good place to stop and enjoy a myriad of flavours. The young people work here are extremely friendly and very willing to help you decide which flavour you should get. Prices are very reasonable and the ice cream is delicious

Yep, this place is legit. And the people that work here are super nice. We'd traveled to tombstone a year ago and stopped. Kids could not stop talking about it, so we stopped again and it again far exceeded our expectations...

We went to the ice cream shop. I got a peppermint glacier. Yum Yum. Really good. No seating but a great place for ice cream.

We stop by for ice cream and specialty coffee drinks regularly and have never had a bad experience. Everything that we have ordered has been delicious and the staff is always fun. I highly recommend this place for anyone visiting the Benson area!

Not only was it a cute little ice cream shop, but they serve some amazing ice cream too! There are so many to choose from but everyone of them is great! The staff is usually friendly but of course you'll get one or two who aren't.
