Took two of my older grandkids in for some ice cream. Great service, good choices for ice cream (blueberry & huckleberry) was awesome. Kids enjoyed theirs as well. Nice place.

Our party of 15 stopped for a treat on a hot day. Ice cream was great. We also had shaved ice and smoothies. A little overpriced and the flavored soft serve was not so flavorful. All of the hard serve items that we had were awesome - cones and sundaes.

After driving through the Rocky Mountain National Park from Estes Park, we were in the need of a sugar fix! There is another ice cream shop closer to the highway, but the line was really long, so we kept walking and came across this one. Glad we kept walking!

What a delightful experience. This mom and pop shop has a Flavor Burst Ice Cream Machine that adds the custom flavor to the velvety smooth soft serve...makes my mouth water just writing this! So many combinations available, you could try a different one every day all summer and still not exhaust the possibilities. In addition to this wonderful treat, they... More

Came here in 2008 on vacation, so when we returned this year (Sep 2015) knew we wanted another waffle cone with hard ice cream. Really hits the spot! We've tried the choc chip mint, and bing cherry flavors. Yummy. Few little tables both inside and outside available to sit and enjoy.

Their ice cream is good but don't buy the taffy. Ours was hard and most likely not a big seller since it may have been from the original order of the summer season. Don't know but have had better for sure. Save your money and go elsewhere.
