We had delicious ice cream here almost every night. A cute stop on Main Street with good flavors of hard ice cream, served in a cone or dish. Other choices available, including soft serve, cookie sandwiches and brownies. Reasonable prices and pleasant service.

Very friendly staff and a good selection of well made flavors. I had the dark chocolate and raspberry, which was great.

Stopped by a couple of time in the week spent at Lake Placid. Helpful staff that was able to handle a large crowd with ease. Great flavor combinations at reasonable prices for premium ice cream.

Awesome treats! A very bust place but the staff was efficient and frineldy and got us in and out! Try the salted caramel bananas foster ice cream. AMAZING! For the four of us, each getting a pertty hefty ice cream treat ran about $17.

This place was packed so we had to wait in line for quite a while. The ice cream was worth the wait. I really loved my ice cream sandwich & my daughter loved the flair of ice cream she got (sea salt caramel something). Worth...More
