I've been there maybe 20 times in the last 5 years. Nice atmosphere, good dishes. The apples are awesome.

What a selection of desserts!! Handmade and fresh... best tasting Chocolate, Ice Cream and all sorts of delectable sweets... the Zwahlen's family was there when we went in and talked about opening the store and the various options for dessert... wonderful place!

Z's is always hit or miss. Why just serve thee flavors? I actually left there not getting anything as chocolate, vanilla and Big Papa flavors just weren't appealing.

I've had their ice cream and a few of their chocolate treats. Everything is quite delicious. There is something for everybody at Zwahlens.

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!
