Reviewed November 9, 2013 via mobile

I was teavelling through thisblittle quiet city, If you wsnt to get away from all the big cities with lot if tourists, this is the place.
In this littke city is a very cosy, retro movie theathre. With the new movies. It is like yiu sre send back in the past.
Right beside the movie theathre us Scoops from the past. Gooood homemade ice cream. If youre bear, try it. And the owner is very nice too.

“Must see!!!”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

With my wife and 12 year old daughter we stopped in passing through to Bryce Canyon after reading the reviews. What a delight. Not only was the tour and the story about the rebuilding of the theater fascinating, the ice cream was great. But I have to say in particular to the young lady working behind the counter- Lauren Smith - you made the experience fantastic! Thank you for the hospitality. The fact that I am still motivated to make these comments three months later says something about the positive and lasting impression of our visit. The new owner John has a neat little gem in both the restaurant and his employee!

“Expensive for what it is...”
Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

This is a cash only establishment so now you know. But that's not what bothered me. I thought the ice cream was average based on the lack of flavor making most of them taste the same and then you get to pay four bucks for a scoop of sweet cream....oh well learn fr my misfortune...

“Cute, but pricey”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

This place appears to be about the only business with life in it. The building appears to have been refurbished and the inside is full of cute, 50's themed memoraibila with 50's music playing. There's a theater along with popcorn and candy and unlike the rest of the town, the place has a sense of fun. It's clean and the service was prompt and patient. I asked for at least 5 different ice cream flavor samples and the emploee who helped us was more than happy to oblige.

Outside of that, though, there's not much special about this place. The ice cream's ok, but over-priced, even if it is hand made. I had a hot-fudge sundae with rocky road ice cream and it was quite small, which hot fudge I could never actually find. Tasted good...but I couldn't have picked it apart from Breyers or Baskin Robbins if blind-folded. It was average but as it's the only game in town, there wasn't much for comparison.

Good service, cute idea, nice to see a business with some life in it...but as much as I like to support local businesses, you'd be better off with a pre-wrapped confection from the gas station freezer. Cheaper and it would taste just as good.
