I'm an ice cream junkie and this is some of the best quality I've had. The salted caramel flavor was perfect and it had generous swirls of creamy carmel as a bonus. The honey lavender was not only inventive but yummy. Unlike most premium ice cream places I go to, the serving size was very generous.

It's always a treat to come here! They have a good variety of real ice cream so there is something for everyone! Serving sizes are generous and delicious sugar cones.

We've had many great ice cream experiences at Flapdoodles. The ice cream itself is great; very nice selection of flavors; staff is friendly; service is fast. Very kid friendly place.

We stayed at the Hampton Inn across the street, so we had seen this place during the day. They have a big sign, but it isn't lit at night. Look for the OPEN sign in the window. Obviously this is a local favorite. We were there on a weeknight and it was pretty cool, but it was very busy. They... More

What can I say? My daughter and I have been here before. The richest, most flavorful ice I've ever had. They DO NOT skimp on the ingredients! Butter brickel with huge chunks of real buttery toffee! The mint chocolate chip is also remarkably minty, and full of chunks of chocolate! Very satisfying.

They have a full assortment of homemade ice cream and it is amazing. The sizes are very generous and once scoop can really fill you up. We will definitely be making additional trips to Rochester just to get some ice cream at Flapdoodles. Personally, my favorite is raspberry cheesecake. ;)

My wife and I enjoyed our first visit to Flapdoodles. The restaurant is simple and colorful, and the walls are filled with interesting sayings. The ice cream selection is large and the flavors we had tasted great. We were happy to purchase two tasty cones at a reasonable price.

My husband is a big Coldstone fan and he likes the ice cream here just as much! They have plenty of flavors to choose from. My husband had the cookies and cream and I tried the cookie monster. Both were very good. The ice cream is fluffy and smooth. They even have ice cream cakes which I want to try... More

The ice cream here is thick and, well, creamy, like ice cream should be. There are many flavors - a personal favorite is mint chocolate chip. You order by the size and number of scoops. As you eat, you are entertained by the many nonsensical sayings on the walls and tables, such as "I dream of the day when chickens... More
