“Save a lot of room for dessert!”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Wow, awesome home made ice cream, great flavors, huge portions. You really need to save room for dessert at this stop. And everybody had a big smile on their face, it was one of those happy little places, really. If you didn't leave room for dessert, it's fun just to watch everyone else indulge!

“Homemade ice cream we couldn't resist.”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

The owner chatted with us the entire time we were in the place, and she was delightful. Her grandchildren came in while we were there, and they are just precious!

“If you don't stop here, shame on you!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

You'll miss a great "take you back to your childhood" treat if you don't get an ice cream here. So many flavors and combinations to choose from - it's hard to decide. But they are very gracious about letting you sample some flavors so you can make a decison. We picked 3 "out of the ordinary" flavors and enjoyed them at a table outside on the boardwalk and people watched. A very enjoyable experience all around.

“We can't get enough!”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Oh, the ice cream here is awesome! So many yummy flavors and not enough time to eat them all. Our favorites are pumpkin (only available in the fall), whoopie pie, cinnamon ginger snap, grape nut (amazingly good!), apple pie, and I cannot even remember the rest! You have to try this place! But, be prepared to wait in line. BTW, we thought the name of the place was the Ice Cream Factory....

“Wow”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Best ice cream ever and the largest. One scoop = 4 scoops in UK, All homemade with 35 flavours. It took ages just choosing a flavour. I had butter Pecan. My sons has Mint chocolate chio and Butterscotch with hot chocolate sauce. What a find. Fantastic service and made you think of old fashioned ice cream shops
