“Delicious ice cream”

BJ’s Ice Cream Parlor
Ranked #1 of 3 Dessert in Florence

Delicious ice cream, and a good selection of flavors. They also had a huge selection of flavors for salt-water taffy, but we didn't get any this trip.

My only problem was that it is upstairs, and I didn't see any ramps. We had our daughter in a stroller, so my husband waited down on the sidewalk with her while I went in and got our ice cream.

Selection of flavors is all that you could ask for....we had to go back two more times during our stay in Florence to get all the flavors we wanted. Oh the waffle cones....still warm and so fresh almost as good as the icecream. Friendly folks and fast service even when there is a big crowd inside.

Yeah, yeah, yeah...it's a touristy kind-of-place, but that's what a lot of places on the coast are like...because if a place is good, it draws a lot of people. No qualms about that here; I don't judge a place on the clientele - if it's goods or services are good, they're good.

First off, the one scoop we got was huge!!! I got the Maple Nut and husband got some mint concoction; his visiting nieces gobbled-up their ice cream quickly and loved each spoonful. The maple was sweet - not overly sweet - chocked and packed with an ample amount/balance of nuts. Prices were reasonable and you can pick up the usual salt water taffy load to boot. Traffic flow is impeded by the shelf between the ice cream case and salt water taffy, but not a detriment to the review.

There are tables if you want to enjoy your scoops outside but walking along the pier will help melt away a few calories (albeit only a few, but who's counting on vacation).

BJ's ice cream is very, very good and their Rocky Road is exceptional. Lots of customers, most of whom have never learned to stand in line. The service at the counter was fast and pleasant. We will certainly return the next time we are in Old Town Florence.

Typical tourist trap. Run the customers through like cattle. Sometimes I felt like we were being directed by the ice cream nazi.
