The only problem you have is what flavors of ice cream to choose from and what toppings it is almost limitless in choices. Excellent.

The Hobby Horse is an ice cream lover's dream come true. There are many selections to choose from and you can select your own toppings. With indoor/outdoor seating and free parking it is nice to relax and eat your ice cream.
