This is a very small shop. It has about 10 or 12 flavors. But the ice cream is locally made and very good. Prices are pretty typical for an ice cream shop.

One of the first places I stop when I'm in town is Great Licks. I love the variety of flavors - there's something for every taste! It's lovely to try a new one while people-watching from one of the outdoor tables.

Best ice cream I ve had in a long time. Friendly servers, always ready to help out and give you a taste of your choice before you can make a decision. Pistachio is my favorite.
