Good variety of flavors for the ice cream lovers. They do offer a few non-dairy options including sorbets and ice cream made with coconut & almond milk instead. Even have a tasty treat for the 4-legged patrons. They also serve the biggest fluffy donuts around!...More

I'll keep this review short as others seem to pretty much agree...Third Bowl is OUTSTANDING. Terrific ice cream in unique flavors. I had a boring peach milkshake...because I love peach. But I had a taste of my friend's pineapple habanero (ice cream...not a euphemism) and...More

Try the Honey Lavender!!!!! We ate here after dinner. It is a perfect place to top off dinner. There is a deck out back to sit and enjoy outside.
