This small place has some of the best ice cream you can buy. They also have other menu items that are available.

We enjoyed our ice cream. But it was no better than a Baskin Robbins. Cones appeared to be store bought and dipped too deeply into the chocolate, leaving only the very tip to hold without getting chocolate all over your hand.

I looked up the hours of this place before bothering to park my truck and gigantic trailer in the crowded town, which was no easy task. Walked probably a half mile to get back to the shop. Went at about 5:45 to find a sign...More
