We both had Sundays, mine was hot fudge and my wife got butterscotch. With the selection of flavors that are homemade they were delicious. We stopped back again on Sunday at 12:00 on our way home but they don't open until 1:00 and were closed.

It said home made ice cream, what a joke. Expensive and not very good. I would not go back and would not recommend this place.

We came here after flying kites across the street. Lots of flavors to choose from and service was great. The little one loved coffee flavor the best. We also got Oreo and mandarin chocolate chip. It was a nice way to end the day!
