The ice cream is homemade here, the cost is not bad the flavors have a wide variety. It is located in the historic section of the town which makes it easy to walk to.

This is a great place to stop when you're browsing the shops. There were several unique flavors and this is a great bargain stop as well, as a single scoop of ice cream is considered the baby size and is therefore $2.00 at the time of this writing.

So we waited in the line. Not bad for an ice cream place at a summer vacation location. I ordered the cherry vanilla. There were minuscule bits of maraschino cherries. The ice cream was overly sweet. I cant describe it well but it had sort of a syrupy consistency. I noticed that the strawberry ice cream also had no strawberries... More

Si yummy ice cream. Tried the Galaxy, house special which was dark chocolate and a scoop of vanilla, you can't go wrong. For a small portion there were 2 huge scoops and very reasonable price.

One of the best ice-creams I have ever tasted i my entire life. They are so good with making you taste the flavors and hand you your ice cream quickly. I tried the Chocolate Almond milkshake and I am in LOVE. I am not a dessert / sweets-kinda person but I could drink this shake three times a day! MUST... More

King's Dutch chocolate is some of the richest, tastiest chocolate ice cream I've ever eaten. Don't miss it.

I've been coming here for about 30 years now and it's still the good ol same ice cream. Now I've passed the tradition on to my children. It's worth the stop to treat yourself.
