Such a variety of interesting flavors and priced reasonably. We visited after a tour of the Lockport Caves which are across the street. Don't miss this gem.

We were early for the Lockport Caves tour, so we came here to get some ice cream. I don't remember how many flavor choices there were but it was over 20. Like Paula's donut flavor, loganberry, butter beer, blue moon and so many more.

Ice cream at its finest with very unique flavors to keep you coming back for more - trying something new or sticking with the same one over and over again. I keep coming back to Peanut Butter Epiphany ... because it is. Sometimes I'll have a sundae with that same flavor. My wife is a nut for Paula's donut ice... More
