Ranked #45 of 46 Dessert in Scottsdale

After walking through art stores selling essentially the same thing, it was nice to find a place with more individuality. The waffle cones were fresh and the pistachio ice cream was some of the best I've had. The person working behind the counter deserves a lot of credit for building the brand/experience also. Working alone, she quickly filled an order of 10 milkshakes while working us in as well in between. If you are looking for a decent place for ice cream after walking around, this place will not disappoint.

Stopped by on a very hot day. Cappuccino ice cream is delish. Mixed with espresso shots and ice coffee for a yummy coffee lovers drink. Pistachio got great reviews from the kids. Nice friendly girl behind the counter but she could have used some help. Old fashioned ice cream shoppe decor. A good place to stop on a hot day!

You might as well go to the grocery store and buy a pint of this stuff for the same price as one scoop -$4. They ship the ice cream over from Chicago in giant bins and drop it into the freezer. The samples I tried were below average and the cinnamon (which won some award) was poor and did not pack that punch from the spice. Tasted like vanilla with a dusting of cinnamon on top. Overpriced and overhyped Scottsdale ice cream shop.

I took mango sorbet - haagen dazs has much better one for the same price. Ice cream shop is located in nice area though.
