Friendly customer service and delicious homemade flavors? What else could you ask for in such a charming town?! Don't miss out on the cake batter! If you are gluten free this place is a MUST! There are tons of gluten free flavors! (cake batter is not one of those....)

This little down town is adorable...historic, much like mayberry. Every downtown needs an ice cream shop. They have a cute little seating area, the locals all gather and happily munch the home made flavors like cotton candy and toasted coconut, to name MY favs :-)

Went down with my family on the 4th of July and oh May God is this ice cream good. We were served very quickly and the ice cream is to die for. There may be a line but it's well worth it.

Long time Neighborhood ice cream place. Great ice creams. Today was opening day after the winter day. They had long lines, but still the same old great ice cream, and friendly service. Love this place.

A mainstay in Cranbury. People of all ages flock to Gil & Bert's for yummy Giffords ice cream, hand-dipped. Fairly priced and generous scoops.

The single scoop is actually double, like they give you 2 scoops when you ask for a single and you get so much ice cream for $3!! But they stay closed from October to April I believe.
