What can I say. You can't beat homemade ice cream! This place has some of the best! Great flavors, friendly service, and a fun atmosphere. It is a little more expensive but I think the quality is worth it. They also have frequent visitor cards that add up to a free ice cream. Great coffee and hot drinks too!

I read about this local ice cream shop in a travel book. Ice cream made locally. Small town feel about the area, so gave it a shot. I ordered cookies and cream. This has got to be the worst ice cream I ever tasted. The line was long, prices were high. First time I didn't go up to the 16... More

ZSW has the best ice cream in town! Although it's a little pricey, it is so worth it! You have to try the Graham Slam flavor. My favorite is graham slam with reese's mixed in. It is my favorite dessert! 11/10 for sure!

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.
