Don't let the lines discourage you. It moves fast as there are sometimes up to 7 people working behind the counter. Inventive flavors (Stranahan's whisky) and delicious ice cream brings customers back again and again. They typically have about 20 different flavors and they rotate different ones in every week. My wife practically lived here during her pregnancy.

I love this ice cream shop! The servers are friendly and knowledgeable, you can taste to your hearts delight, and the ice cream is delicious!

This place has a great old school ice cream shoppe vibe but with very modern flavors which pairs nicely with the hipsters serving you ice cream. We went on an weekday evening and the line was out the door but it moves fast. They let you taste before you commit which helps to narrow down the numerous delicious concoctions available.... More

Grabbed this for dessert after dinner on Broadway. Very cool street to just walk and explore different shops. Tried the vietnamese coffee and it was delicious. You can sample before you buy also, which is helpful.

We got the vanilla bean and chocolate whoopie ice cream. It was good and not too sweet. However, the ice cream wasn't out of this world good.

Good ice cream. Cones are amazing. Limited flavors and some are vegan. Fun little shop with garage doors that open when the weather is nice.

Great local favorite. All hand made ice cream, all made onsite and always amazing. We always take out of towners here during the summer.

This was the worst ice cream I have ever had. It did not even tasted like ice cream. Tasted as if powder milk was used instead of cream. I got 2 different flavors and both were simply horrible. Not really sure why this place is so highly rated.

Thank kartaqueen
