Location and contact


We use a combination of vanilla extract & vanilla paste from the great Nielsen-Massey Vanillas.
Made w/ cocoa powder & Callebaut chocolate.
Espresso Chip
Made w/ espresso, a bit stronger than our Vietnamese Coffee flavor, & chocolate chips!
Salted Butter Caramel
Made w/ butter, cream, & lots of coarse sea salt, this is our most popular flavor.
Strawberry Lime With Strawberry Swirl
All local strawberries, as usual, from Lyon Farms in Creedmoor.
Tangernne cardamom
Made w/ tangerine juice, tangerine zest, & a hint of ground cardamom.
Sweet potato
Roasted Pine Knot Farms sweet potatoes, dark brown sugar, & a bit of cinnamon. Our favorite flavor! Try it in a cinnamon waffle cone, or in a dish w/ pralines pecans & ginger butterscotch sauce.
Honey Chai
We brew‏ chai tea, add extra cardamom, cinnamon, & fresh ginger, then add local honey.
Strawberry Balsamic
A coconut-based vegan flavor made w/ Lyon Farms strawberries & balsamic vinegar.
Vegan Chocolate
Both semi-sweet & dark chocolate are melted into a coconut milk base for a super smooth & creamy vegan ice cream. Probably the best vegan ice cream we’ve made yet.
Whipped Cream Free With Any Topping
Ginger butterscotch
Toasted coconut
Hot fudge
Whipped cream
Thin mint cookies

The ice cream is good, the service is terrible and it''s extremely overpriced. But if you're looking for an authentic looking ice cream parlor, go here.

Stopped here to celebrate a hockey tournament. The portions were huge, even for a single scoop! While this restaurant doesn't make their own ice cream, they do make their own peanut butter sauce. Highly recommend it! Ice cream was good, service was friendly, and we...More

This 50s-style ice cream shop has a cool decor, with booths as well as counters with stools for seating. Despite being known for their ice cream, I was disappointed by it. It was just average ice cream, and the young man you waited on us...More

This is a unique place. I’ll give it that and only that. It throws you back in time with the decor/layout in having bar stools and booths. The ice cream was okay. Nothing too fancy to brag about. It is on the pricy side. If...More

Assuming you want to get two sundaes, around $10-12. I do not recommend ordering your main meal here however(read some reviews).
