“great old style ice cream”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

great place and orig decor. felt like home. ordered mystic mud(?) but it had too much chocolate so I couldn't finish it. UNLESS you REALLY LOVE CHOCOLATE, don't get that one. mocha coffee ice cream was really good though. nice scenic view of the drawbridge right outside of the door

“Best Ice Cream”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Can't go on enough about this place. The icecream selection was increadible and the service was top notch. We'd a few combinations of ice cream over 2 days in Mystic and each one delicious.

...coffee and sandwiches were also really good.

“Don't spend your money here.”
Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

This place had sub standard customer service. It is run by a bunch of kids that spread to be very disorganized and in over their heads. The ice cream was average at best and there are plenty of other I cream shops in Mystic that have better customer service and better ice cream. (Look across the street)

“Shambolic service”
Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

The staff are letting this place down. It should be a cutesy little cafe in a beautiful waterfront town, but the lines are long because the staff can't seem to figure out how to communicate with each other. We waited 15 mins for them to get a cup of coffee right (3 failed attempts, each a little different from the last but none getting it right) by which time the ice cream had melted. No apologies or acknowledgement. Feels like its being run by teenagers who don't want to be there.

“Nice flurry but a bit expensive”
Reviewed June 23, 2014 via mobile

Stopped and had a flurry of vanilla ice cream and snickers bits in. Yes it was nice and very filling but at $6.75 overpriced for what it was and I've had nicer ice cream elsewhere.
