“A true treasure”
Reviewed August 31, 2014

We stopped here after hearing about it on an Npr episode. This is such a throw back in time. What a treat, an old fashioned type fountain ice cream shop. They bring you menus and have waitstaff. I had a French vanilla hot fudge sundae which was amazing. The ice cream tastes truly homemade. Everything is served in silver bowls. My husband had banana ice cream. He claimed it was the best he'd ever had. The manager overheard him initially order peach ice cream but they didn't have any more. After we'd been served, she brought over a small bowl of the peach ice cream that she had scrapped out of the bottom of the container for him. It was a really nice gesture on her part She spent a few minutes talking with us and had the nicest things to say about the owners of this small business. It's remained in the family forever.

“A Queen City Favorite”
Reviewed August 28, 2014 via mobile

One phrase says it all: ice cream made the old fashioned way. Seriously, good ice cream and you could definitely palm it off as home made in the best sense of the word. I think the best flavor is their banana. Fresh frozen taste of bananas, cream, and vanilla. It is a step back in time as you enter the shoppe. Pleasant sweet smelling and lots of pink (their color). There are marble table tops and counters. Try a piece or two of their homemade chocolate too!

“Excellent home made icecream and reasonable!”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

My family and I ate here for dessert and it was excellent. We looked on Tripadvsor to find something other than our usual Greaters! We found this place on Madison Rd, right next to a really cool book store, the Blue Manatee. My ice cream sandwich was excellent, I had pecan vanilla between two chocolate like wafers!! Really good!! My daughter had the lemon freeze AKA, lemon sorbet. She enjoyed it as well. This place also sold candy, chocolate exc. it's like an old fashion ice cream shop with a soda bar. Great service, great prices, good icecream.

Reviewed July 17, 2014

The other flavors do not disappoint. We love this delightful ice cream parlor with friendly service, delicious ice cream, and those silver dishes! So sorry we live hundreds of miles away.
