“Great ice cream but be prepared to wait”

Went here with my daughters on a Sunday afternoon based on reviews. The line was back to the door and it took about 15 minutes to get the ice cream and had to wait to be rung up at the register while ice cream was melting.. The ice cream was excellent and good assortment of flavors including some vegetarian flavors. Needless to say this place is really popular as there was no seating left either (sits about 20 or so). Prices are reasonable they give you real large scoops.

It is very trendy but that doesn't mean it is overrated; the ice cream is amazing. I am trying to be good and have only been twice but it was worth the 800 calories each time. Slightly more expensive than your run of the mill boutique ice cream store, for whatever that is worth.

This ice cream shop is ADORABLE! I had a mint chip single scoop in a cinnamon waffle cone, and it was worth ever penny-- fresh, tasty, and the cone was perfection. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!

Ice cream was tasty and the specialty sundaes are especially creative. The shop is very clean and spacious. It's got a modern feel with a classic touch (e.g., they serve the sundaes in glass dishes). It's not the most kid-friendly ice cream shop, but that doesn't seem like what they are going for.
