Just ice cream and frozen yogurt. Typical New England sizes (generous). Many unique flavors. Nice home-made cones for extra $$$. I think they are open year-round.

Its good ice cream but not ideal for a family with kids. The amounts are tiny and the prices are way to high.

Our tour guide recommended this place and glad we stopped in. They had a small but excellent selection of ice creams. The helpful and friendly staff made the visit even better. By the way, they have a gluten free cone.

Great authentic home made ice cream and frozen yogurt. I love any of the coffee flavors. A little expensive but this is Lexington

Great service and unique flavors make this one of our favorite ice cream parlors. They are open throughout the year, we have been there even when it was snowing outside

"rancs LOVE!" These two words have come to define who we are as a company and as member of our communities. "rancs LOVE" defines how we treat our team of local kids, our partners and our guests. "rancs LOVE' is what goes into every cup, cone, cake and coffee we make. "rancs LOVE" is that beacon in the sky that drives us to constantly improve, to make great ice cream and to bring happiness to your day. "rancs LOVE" drips down the side of the cone and we scrape every last drop out of those cool lime green cups. "rancs LOVE" is that slurping empty straw sound we all dread. come by and see "rancs LOVE" for yourself
