I visited Hobby Horse with my family (9 of us) to try out the ice cream. There was a small line when we arrived, but they seemed to take care of everyone pretty fast. I tried the Hobby Horse Oreo delight and it was delicious!!!...More

Yum! Delicious rich ice cream with many flavors to choose from. There are indoor and outdoor tables. I had a cone the first night and a very big brownie sundae the second night that could have been easily been shared.

We frequent Hobby Horse Ice Cream when in town. We love trying all the different homemade ice cream flavors. It gets crowded in the summer but well worth the wait. They have seating in the back with TVs to enjoy while eating your ice cream.
