We stopped in for a treat midafternoon. They have a large variety of flavors and OK atmosphere.

We got cones and went down to the bay to sit in the park and enjoy our treats.

We'll be back.

Stayed at SB Marina & walked over. Nice atmosphere! Very nice Wedge salad! Crab Risotto cakes needed more crab. Duck entree was very good with cherries & wine beans. Wonderful duck breast, not fatty , cooked nicely, tender. Toasted ravioli appetizer was tasty! We'll be back!

We visited the factory shop, not the scoop shop and there were not any other customers at 11 am. We had excellent ice cream and sat in a booth to eat it. As we looked around, we noticed that the shop itself was very dingy and was in need of a good cleaning and paint. The bathroom definitely needs to be upgraded. It was horrendous. For the shop just opening for the day, we were not thinking highly of how clean the kitchen/factory area were. Will give a better review if owner takes steps to clean up in the future.

Hello,

Thank you for reviewing my shop. I am happy that you enjoyed your ice cream and appreciate your input regarding the bathrooms and paint. The opener is supposed to restock and make sure the bathrooms are clean before we open for the day, but apparently, they missed this step that day. Your input has reminded me that we need to make sure we do every item on our opening list without fail. Regarding paint, each spring we do touch up painting before we open as the smell hangs in the store for days. Throughout the year, parts of the store get roughed up through daily activities. Your review has reminded me that I need to figure out a way to repaint in the middle of the season so the store doesn't start to look so beat up. Thanks again for your review and I hope that you will stop in next time you are in Door County.


Regards,

Todd Frisoni

Friendly service and tasty home made ice cream treats. The sandwiches and pizza were also very good for a quick lunch last week. The ice cream was super cold and freshly made.
