We read they served a pumpkin pecan ice cream. So when ordering, the clerk said they just made a fresh batch and asked if we would mind waiting for it to soften. In the meantime we ordered their peanut butter swirl ice cream. It was so creamy and delicious! When the pumpkin ice cream was ready to eat, we couldn't believe how delicious it was. This ice cream shop is among the best we've ever been too!

Absolutely the best ice cream on the Connecticut coast. Hand-made in house...and the flavors...WOW. Also a good place for lunch. Soups are made every day with fresh local (when possible) ingredients. Sandwiches, wraps and salads are out of this world. They roast their own meat (beef, chicken, etc) for the sandwiches...and again, locally sourced when possible. Feels like home.

The ice cream is very rich – YUM! The prices were very reasonable, and the scoops were a generous size. We loved the pumpkin caramel pecan pie! It’s amazing with chunks of pie crust in it. Friendly & helpful service. Great atmosphere…Will be back!!!

Excellent ice cream. Pleasant service. Generous portions. Cash only. Parking on Lyme Street, which fortunately does not have a lot of traffic.
