Good tasting ice cream Like the old days - walk up and get your treats and then sit in your car or outside or walk around the neighborhood. Staff is friendly and helpful.

“Awesome home made ice cream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I tried Rakestraws for the first time a month ago and it's pretty much a monthly hot stop spot for us. The staff is extremely friendly and the ice cream is delicious.

On our 3rd stop my raspberry ice cream had some frozen "gravel" pieces, but that was my first experience with that.

The prices are very decent (8 dollars) 2 small sizes on a sugar cone (hanging over the cone) Leo's ice cream was 4.50 just for me alone on a regular cone and the scoop was an actual 1 scoop (very small) so in my opinion Rakestraws is better and less expensive.
