The best creamy ice cream ever. Peachy Paterno was amazing . Death by chocolate also amazing . Not very busy and the service was good! A little pricey for ice cream. Over $4 for one serving. It was very nice eating outside!

It's busy all summer. Students start returning 2nd week of August. There is a parking structure directly behind the building with very reasonable rates.

I think the cones were around $3.50 or $4.00. They are one size only, huge! You can get it in a dish also. Worth it.
