The directions are on the wall but just ask if it is your first time. You choose vanilla or chocolate and they mix anything else from a long list to it - delicious. Your choices include nuts, flavors, fruits, candies, etc. Very unique.

The Ice cream shop is located at the beginning of the Walnut Street walking bridge. Perfect stop to get a cool drink before you start the journey across the bridge and again when you return. Great ice cream too.

We decided to explore downtown and walk across the Walnut Street Bridge and right at the end was this quaint little ice cream place to offer a nice, tasty treat. Basically, you pick either chocolate or vanilla ice-cream and then you can add in whatever...More

Some girlfriends and I visited after dinner one night for some late night treats. So glad they stay open late. We all either had ice cream or iced coffee, and we all were pretty happy with what we got. Lots to choose from. Friendly staff.

Huge crowds at the end of the bridge waited 40 minutes after we paid to get ice cream (50) minutes inall. Ice cream was good but overpriced and small portions. Overall, wouldn’t go back.

The ice cream is very good, with lots of add-in options. There aren't many options for the basic ice cream, I think just chocolate and vanilla. It's on the pricey side, so a family might want to avoid it unless it's a special treat.
