“Aztec Chocolate”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

A long time hometown favorite place. Incredibly delicious churned ice cream, my fav is Aztec Chocolate. Chocolate with cayenne--cold, then hot spicy!

“Quality is fair”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

I experienced this venue when it was a drive through on Merrimon Ave. I thought the ice cream, while plentiful was only average as I like richer flavor. I went back to them (at the new location) with my grandson, and felt nothing had changed.

we indulged on some ice cream from here and was shocked at how good it was. they use cream from a local dairy and have very interesting flavors. Try the Lavender.

“Weird flavors, unusual combinations of homemade ice cream”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

Too bad the place turned us off with an odd smell and a sense that it needed to be cleaned. I just can't imagine ordering Blueberry and Spinach ice cream. The coconut was good, so were some of the more standard combinations. Too bad it the place seemed unclean.
