“Ice cream flavors pack a punch”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

A local friend took me here as 1 of her fave ice cream places. It's adjacent to its Indian spice store, so it smells like an Indian restaurant upon entering as opposed to a dessert place.

The flavors are abundant and more interesting than the norm. I had the Mexican chocolate. It was very good and lots of spice... so much that it actually tasted like Indian chocolate. Nevertheless, still very good and not too sweet.

“Rockin Blueberry Sorbet!!”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

This wonderful ice-cream shop has too many flavor possibilities to list here. I personally chose the Blueberry Sorbet and could not have been happier with my choice! The Waffle cones were amazingly fresh and incredibly yummy!

“Not so friendly”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Wonderful ice cream, but it would've been better if it was served with a smile. Bitter customer service made the ice cream a little less sweet

“great flavors, indifferent service”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

We'd heard about the specialty flavors and were eager to check this place out. The kids behind the counter definitely seemed to wish to be somewhere else, but they did give samples when requested. I had the burnt sugar and chocolate mousse and hubby had pistachio and almond coconut. But very good. The ambience wasn't exactly special, so between that and the service, I'm not sure we'd go back, but it was worth a trip.

“mixed emotions”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

we came here after having ice cream at toscaninis and i have to say i was disappointed, its not the the ice cream was bad, in fact i had the burnt sugar which was great but the ambience was horrible. it looked like an old pizzeria that was converted to the current store. also, as soon as you walk in it smells like spices, so i was thrown off by that, apparently they also own the spice shop next door (also called christina's) and keep the adjoining door open at times so the smells waft in. don't even think about using the bathroom here! overall i wouldn't go back...
