One of the BEST ice cream joints in town. All fresh made items and always cold, fresh and delicious. A must try if you dare to indulge.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stop at Bruster's Ice Cream. The customer service was great and although there was a long line, it moved very fast. The treats are well priced and the portions are huge. Delicious ice cream!
