“My Family's Favorite Ice Cream Shop!”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

We love Zwahlens' homemade ice cream! Although they only offer vanilla, chocolate and the flavor of the day. You can pretty much make your favorite flavor by adding toppings, fruit, nuts, etc which they'll blend into what they call an Avalanche (think of DQ's Blizzard). They provide a monthly take home calendar with their flavor of the day ice cream schedule so you are sure not to miss your favorites. It's also available online too. And they have wonderful assorted homemade chocolates and a nice variety of chocolate/caramel apples. The restaurant is adorable with the feel of a swiss chalet and they have outside seating too. All of their employees are extremely polite and friendly. There isn't a bad thing to say about this place except for the long lines which is to be expected since it is the best place for ice cream. But don't let the lines scare you away, they move fast and it is worth the wait! Enjoy!

“Summer Nights @ Zwahlens....Muuaaa !!”
Reviewed February 15, 2012

We have been there countless times and one thing we always had was Banana Split. You can order 3 scoops of whatever icecream you like and top it off with as many toppings as you want. 3 toppings are free. We then top it off with hot fudge and whipped cream. The ambiance is good, especially on summer night when you get to sit outside. Its almost always full on a summer night. Overall I love this place...

“Best Ice Cream Shop ever....”
Reviewed February 10, 2012

Not only the best ice cream shop ever, but a pretty good candy store in general. Everything is fresh made, they have a daily special ice cream that is added to the menu with vanilla and chocolate. The make fresh candy and chocolate on site. Visit as often as you can, but leave the calorie counters at home...

“The Ultimate Ice Cream Experience!!!!”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

OMG!! This place puts all other ice cream places to shame.

The smells coming out of this place are out of control amazing. A mixture of chocolate, fudge, ice cream, and apple pie beckons you in. Once inside, the place welcomes you with it's lodge like feel and fireplace.

After you choose your ice cream, get ready for food bliss. Please, don't be tame and order a small vanilla. Life's too short. Go crazy and get something you really want. Like the brownie sundae (the Steinschlag). I promise, it'll be worth the extra workout to burn off the calories.

They also have their own chocolate shop with beautifullly dipped apples, succulent chocolate covered strawberries, and complete cases of bon bons and truffles.

Unbelievable!!!!!
