Two nights in a row now during my short visit with friends here in Newton I have waited on the fast moving line to get some great ice cream. And the young people who work the counter are delightful as well!

good ice cream, many flavors, quick service, will give small tastes of their variety of flavors if asked. Not much space inside to eat. There is a bench outside.
