“SOY ICE CREAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

This place is incredible for anyone who is lactose intolerant (and people who can have dairy), because they have soy ice cream!!!!! I have been craving ice cream for the last 10 years and finally found somewhere that serves it, many others serve sorbet but that just isn't the same.
We went here almost every night while in town!

“Great ice cream and frozen yogurt”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Went here three nights in a row. In addition to terrific ice cream and frozen yogurt, the home made blueberry pie was wonderful, especially ala mode with coffee Heath yogurt. My favorite, however, was the black raspberry yogurt.

“Overloaded with the good stuff!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Between the "I'm not sure yet" and "Maine Survivor" I think we got enough real cookie dough, chips, peanut butter cups and fudge to make an amazing batch of cookies! Wow! This ice cream does not skimp on the good stuff! One scoop in a cup was a very large portion as well! Five of us had "one scoop" and one of us had a BIG chocolate chip cookie too and the total was around $20. Well worth it in our opinion! No line in October!

“Black raspberry ice cream”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

The black raspberry ice cream had raspberry infused chocolate chunks. There is a burst of raspberry in each chunk that are very generously added to the ice cream. The scope size is good but the price is a bit high.

“Chocolate fudge brownie ice cream!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

One of the best chocolate fudge brownie ice creams I've had. It has something for everyone...ice cream, frozen yogurt and soft serve and they all have a lot of flavors to choose. Their small ice cream was like other's medium. Good value for the price.
