Double scoop is a large portion and homemade flavors are excellent. Java jolt with coffee beans is a nice twist on coffee. Totally enjoyed.

They have a huge selection of ice cream and ice cream dishes. Also, gourmet coffee. Delicious, affordable and large portions. Sometimes the line goes out the door and down the street. People live their ice cream.
