Zwahlens is a hot spot for the area. They serve three flavors: vanilla, chocolate, and the flavor of the day which rotates. All are made homemade and silky smooth. If you haven't hit Zwahlen's, then you are missing out big time. Check out their flavor...More

Very creative flavors & all home made ice cream and candy! Specialty is their chocolate / caramel covered apples. They sell out around the holidays so place an order if you want to make sure they are available.

We were pleased with the freshly made ice cream. We choose vanilla and also peanut butter. They usually have vanilla and chocolate and usually one other daily flavor. Ice cream is creamy and rich- old fashioned kind (with probably a zillion calories- but worth it)

Fun place for ice cream and a pleasant outdoor café. Expensive but worth the treat! They offer daily specials and the add ons to the ice cream is extensive
