Thank you Sofia, We're glad you enjoyed your visit and look forward to the next time! FYI- The Ice Cream is actually made on a farm in Delaware, where they raise a small herd of pampered, grass-fed Jersey Cows (the brown ones). Jeff

Fabulous ice cream in the heart of Falls Church city. It's a small storefront with a big heart, and my family are very glad that they are here.
