We walked over after a great dinner across the street. My husband had their sea salt caramel and white truffle. A nice bench next to their counter and a friendly conversation with another customer who came to get a partial cup for her german sheppard.

My family and I went here for ice cream, after trying several different samples settled on one and it was mushy ice cream. I would have rather went to McDonalds and got an ice cream cone.

The ice cream is very good and they do have many off the wall flavors. It is very pricey but OK once in awhile. I continue to come back.

Love the location of this place with some cute seating in the outdoors. Especially the board games that we had fun playing while enjoying a hearty portion of a chocolate sundae.

Pricey ice cream but very good. Ice cream is made on site every Sunday. Good selection of different flavors you may never have tried before. Lovely outdoor space to play outdoor games and relax on outdoor patio under lights.
