The atmosphere is great for an old time ice cream place. The ice cream is about the best you can get outside of Texas and the size of the cones are generous.

Great place to have ice cream and soak in a little culture of Ogden- located near the temple and historic 25th street, this little treat is worth the stop- just be aware it gets crazy on the weekends and is closed on Sunday's.
