I've been enjoying Bassetts Ice Cream for over 50 years. It's just simply the best! Every person I know that's tried Bassetts seems to agree that this is the best ice cream they've ever had. Of course the ice cream is best enjoyed right away but they also offer dry ice to pack ice cream for a ride home. Go.. Enjoy!!

A huge selection of ice cream and cones. The prices are a bit high but, that is expected for a seasonal operation. I always enjoy trying out the new flavors and devouring my old standby when non are available. My favorite has always been strawberry shortcake.

Unusually the ice cream is not displayed. There is a list you choose from and you decide whether you want a cup or cone etc.
You pay and you collect at the end of the counter
we got served large scoops of very creamy ice cream
We tried the butter almond and the pralines and cream. Both were good. One of our party had a frozen lemon juice - and enjoyed it though it was sweeter and less sharp then expected.
