By far, hands down the best ice cream. I hear the owners also own the creamery in town probably accounts for why their ice cream is so good. Creamy and they've really nailed their flavors. I continue to search for comparable ice cream in southern california and so far, nothing. The closest I've found that's as good was in New... More

It was good. My husband and I got "Spinners" which are basically their version of a DQ Blizzard. I got s'mores, hubby got mud pie. We were both pleased. About $10 for two smalls. We're not from Bloomington, so not familiar with the menu which was hard to read from the back of the line. As soon as you get... More

best in town, try the unusual sorbets and asian flavored ice creams. Not the best I've had (Toscaninis in MIT or Amys in Houston were better), but they are the best in B Town.

Its popular on hot weekend days so be patient. You will be rewarded with really good ice cream hand dipped in lots of great flavors. Not a lot of seating space but you were going to walk around downtown anyway, right?

Just one block away from Sample Gate, super convenient location. Have different flavors. They will offer you free ice cream sample to taste before you make your decision. Waffle Cone is my favorate.

With all the restaurants on kirkwood, this is a good place to get ice cream after. It's a small location but the ice cream is delicious and portions are awesome! Their "spinners" (like a McDonald's mcflurry) are great and filling enough, I got a small and they fill it up to the brim.

The ice cream flavors are amazing -- Coconut Curry? Ceremonial Green Tea? But they are really tasty, and the portions are generous.

It's in a great location- probably the closest ice cream shop to campus. I used to be very impressed with their wide variety (chocolate basil, curried coconut, etc). But the quality and size of the selection seems to be slowly decreasing in the last few years. Still a decent option if you're by campus, but not what it once was.

This place has a great location and delicious ice cream, but can become incredibly busy so it really depends on the time of day.
