Like another reviewer said the only downside is there's no place inside. The place is shut down during the winter months, but when it is open there's always a long line. People in Plainville love their ice cream. If it's 40 degrees or warmer outside...More

Everyone in town and from surrounding towns awaits the opening of the place. It is a sure sign of Spring and the joys of many trips throughout the summer for ice cream and other treats to follow. There is almost always a long line. It...More
