Their ice creams are great. I would normally the pint, but their waffle cones are a close second on my list. Me and my family go their at least 3 times a month.

My favorite here is the banana pudding. It's seasonal, but so creamy with chunks of cookies. My daughter gets the mint chocolate chip and it's loaded with chocolate. The waffle cone is so fresh and crispy. Large portions and kind of pricey, but your paying for quality.

Bruster's is better than the Ice Cream Shop your parents visited as a kid! There selection of "Made On Site" flavors will keep you guessing about what to order. From Ice creams, floats,, sherbets, Shakes, malts, cakes, & many specialty offerings, they have it all.

Never had a bad flavor here! All homemade, dozens of flavored to choose from & served with a smile! Not the cheapest ice cream in town, but hands down it's the best!
