We try to eat local vs change places when traveling. This little gem is delicious and staff super friendly. Everyone loved them shakes and they’ll make you a new one if you don’t. Good stuff!

Everything you ever want a shake to be. We would go back again and again if only we didn't live in Ohio. Had the strawberry, chocolate and chocolate banana versions. Thick enough to eat with a spoon all the way down to the last bite.

This is definitely worth a stop as all the reviews said. This was my first time there. We had the walnut date shame with the whip cream topping and the little mini donut! So yummy!

This place is always crowed in the evenings and I know why. The shakes are delicious! If you want to avoid the crowds, stop by to grab a shake after you have lunch at a near by restaurant.
