We happened to find this place as we were “roaming.” It was a good find. Huge selection of ice cream and it was really good. My only complaint was they seemed short staffed and their soft serve was out. We will probably go back again...More

Loved this place in an old school house. Incredible variety of ice cream and delicious Sundaes, Frappes etc... Quirky setting with old marionettes.

Lots of flavors, local kids work here... the interior hasn't changed much from the school room it once was. By all means, go!

My family refuses to go anywhere else because nothing tops Short 'n' Sweet ice cream! Super friendly staff with an adorable shop and loads of flavors to pick from!

This nice little ice cream place is set up in an old school house. They had a wide range of ice cream and the entire shop had a very "homey" feel to it. Would definitely recommend if you're in the area.

Terrific ice cream in the middle of Chatham. An easy stop on the bike trail. A great surprise and really good ice cream.
