“Scrumptious Brownies”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

Sweet Dreams is a little candy and bakes shop onthe Devon House grounds. Their brownies
are so chocolatey and rich, worth having those extra calories.

“good ice cream, bad service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

I really liked the house and grounds, the ice cream was very good, but the people behind the counter were horrible. It was busy, I was there with three kids who could not make up their minds to make matters more interesting. They treated us very badly and with much anger. I don't think I'd go back because of that. I can get ice cream somewhere else and be treated better I would hope!
