Ice cream is good but the wait sometimes is long - have 1 or 2 people working and if somebody orders cappuccino, smoothie or milkshake - forget about it.....

This ice cream is good but not worth the overblown price. We visited during the week and the help was slow which made the high prices hurt even more. Attention Owners: this is newtown and not Disney! Go to Owowcow instead.

We just moved to the area last Christmas and so have been indulging in some of the ice-cream in the area. The ice-cream is delicious but we have had others in the area that are as good or better for a much more reasonable price. The ambience is nice and Newtown is so sweet. A great gathering place with friends,... More

Everything you could want for desert. From coffee to hand dipped ice cream to chocolate covered pretzels. The line was long buy worth the wait.

Fantastic ice cream, adorable, quaint shop right on the main street in Newtown. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is because it is one of the most expensive cups of ice cream I've ever had. That being said, their ice cream cakes are out of this world and reasonably priced. We had one once and have since... More
