The ice cream is a bit pricey but it is so good - many. many flavors and combinations available. The place is almost always packed. Great service and generous servings. The place for everyone to go.

Great place for a scope of ice cream or a shake or a small banana split. Sit on the porch or at a table in the grass. A fun time for the family.

A small but quaint ice cream shop at the entrance to the Pisgah Forest. Lots of seating including tables and benches and rocking chairs. All of the ice cream is homemade. A steady flow of traffic at this place.

Great ice cream. A bit high priced for a large scoop but most things in the mountain are. Nice area for sitting to eat and at the entrance to Pisgah national.
