My boyfriend and I stopped because this place carries Lappert's, which I know is a great quality ice cream. While there was a variety of flavors from which to choose, my senses were accosted by the blaring loudness of the music the proprietor was playing...More

We love coming to the Ice Cream Shoppe. The decor is 'da bomb,' the music wonderful, and the products to eat are incredibly fresh and tasty. The service is fab too!

If you're looking for a funky, eclectic place to grab some good ice cream, stop in here! It's difficult to describe the decor, but think vintage books, posters, records, and lots of packing tape! If you love 60's-70's Rock-n-Roll memorabilia, this is your utopia. It's...More

It is a very interesting place with lots of 60's collections. It just doesn't have that clean feel that would make you think that the ice cream is fresh.
