Enjoyed a nice cold treat on a warm summer evening with family. The ice cream options are too numerous to recall but there were all the usual plus some interesting ones like basil, purple sable, etc. Ice cream was really good, maybe not the best I've ever had but up there. Another plus is the deliberate exclusion of artificial flavors,... More

This is the best ice cream we have ever had. I don't need to say more. Cow Tracks is my favorite. Sometimes a line but worth the wait and the line moves fast.

This just may be the best ice cream we ever had ! I had the Double Chocolate Fudge and it was fabulous ! Rich and creamy and home made, you gotta try it ! My wife had the Butter Crunch and she loved it too. Like the nice lady said who worked there "Yes, its good but its not cheap".... More

I've gone here since it first opened and keep going back. You can't beat the quality and variety. They really do it right. The Icecream is fresh and rich, and they have the best flavors. I love this place.

This ice cream is sooooo good. This is the best homemade icecream I've had in Connecticut. We stop here whenever we go to my moms in Colchester, love it! You won't be disappointed. I seem to always get the Heathbar, I love the vanilla base. I wish I'd try others but I'm addicted.
