Always delicious! It is clean, with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. They have standard soft serve, chocolate/vanilla plus orange/vanilla, that is delicious and creamy! You can also add in flavor bursts, if you want to try something new. I don't see them varying the flavors. They cones are huge and they are generous with the toppings! The only downside... More

The soft ice cream is delicious and the portions are huge. Prices are reasonable. The place is immaculate. It's cash only. This was our first visit, and we look forward to returning!

We've been stopping here for years. The cones are huge and the prices are quite fair. My lone comment is the soft serve flavors are mild. The orange/vanilla twist is a favorite of mine but the orange is just barely orange flavored. That hasn't stopped me from getting cones there though!!!! Soft Stuff is quite popular, has some indoor and... More

What a great find across from the old Enchanted Forest! Old soft serve style ice cream, really delicious with an assortment of flavors and mixes. Kiddie size is like most places regular and their regular is oversized. Try the chocolate vanilla mix, yummy!

Orange & vanilla twist is always a must here! Other treats on cones are good also. Mint, when it is flavor of the week, and others...

Back in the day, you had a choice of vanilla, chocolate, mixed and -- later -- flavor of the day in a soft-serve twist cone. The new location -- actually on the site of the original but in a new strip center -- gives choices, choices, choices of many flavors, and includes some yogurt selections. Good size servings for the... More

If you're in the area, you must...MUST stop here and grab some soft serve ice cream. This is the best of its kind in the region. I love this ice cream!! Yay!

Was there ever a sadder summer than 2014 when Soft Stuff was closed while the new shopping center was being built? Well, Soft Stuff is back in its new location with the same soft ice cream and students working their way through college on Soft Stuff tips. I have to admit I miss the old rickety store where you stood... More

Recent experience was just as described by other reviewers. A good soft ice cream. Not the best, not the worst. Several flavor and topping options. Apparently this is a new location. Lines can be long and rather cramped before being served. For my wife and her sister, childhood sentimentality pulls them here (and something called Enchanted Forest?). Now that Soft... More

The new shop (not the one pictured) serves up same menu as the old shop. Very, very popular with the locals.
