The ice cream has never disappointed. Recently had the toasted almond and it was above delicious. Definitely a place for dessert

The ice cream is great and they have many choices (but not too many, which can be too much). Even when it's crowded, they keep the line moving. Definitely worth a try!

This place is always crowded (but in a good way). Lines are manageable and move quickly, because the staff is always hustling. And, althought pricey, it is the best ice cream ever!

The best ice cream ever!! I had coconut and my kids had Husky tracks, salted caramel and banana chip. All were amazing. No place better. A Uconn tradition.

The ice cream & ice cream cakes are too expensive for the quality. There are so many good places that make better ice cream & ice cream cakes, such as Farmer’s Cow & the Fish Family Farm.

Excellent operations management in place to get ice cream to the masses of people who come in waves but move through pretty quickly. Ice cream quality is excellent and the sundaes (if you are very hungry) are creative and definitely shareable!
