Tiny place, kind of hard to find. Unusual and interesting flavors. I am a big time ice cream lover; this ice cream is good, but not great.

Kevin and his wife have a definate hit on their hands. they alway participate in events in Asheville and have a quality product. They have branched out to several locations and work very hard to keep the same quality.

Everything you could want from a local homemade ice cream shop! In North Carolina friendly fashion the servers started up a conversation with us while patiently waiting for us to make up our mind.

For other out-of-towners, look for the more prominent Greek restaurant, then off to the side and in a rear row of retail shops is this wonderful ice cream store. We passed by it the first time as it was almost hidden out of sight from the road. Only by using google maps street view were we able to figure out which group of shops to turn in.

It was well worth it, if you are looking for ice cream don't over look this friendly place!

My wife had blue cheese ice cream, that she adored. Ultimate has litereally dozens of similar exotic flavors, with a rotating menu that changes seasonly. The staff is very, very friendly and eager to let you try any and all of their unique flavors. Very good experience.

This placed is tucked away, practically out of sight from the road. Plug it in to your GPS and seek it out until you find it. Don't pass this up!

So many different flavors that I never thought about before! The staff are always so friendly and offer free samples until you decide what you like. Seasonal flavors, so go all the time!
