Nice little coffee and ice cream shop. Friendly service. A handful of souvenirs. They have pastries early in the day, but were out when we got there.

After a disappointing lunch at Young's we were mollified by the cheery service and excellent ice cream offered here! I requested chocolate ice cream with a shot of hot espresso over the top (with hot fudge and whipped cream!!!). My order was happily tended to and everyone tried a bite at my table.... All expressed (espressed?) "I should have ordered... More

Stopped in for a cone. Fellow at the counter was miserable. Selection was good. Young lady offered a sample on request. Service was really slow. A large group of teens came in and literally surrounded the counter blocking all access.

Excellent locally made ice cream! Salted caramel my very favorite! Fast and friendly service, will return over and over. By far the best ice cream in the area...

I've never had bad ice cream, and this was no exception. The three stars is for a couple reasons, though. It wasn't cheap (because it's homemade), and a couple of our flavors didn't have a lot of taste. The flavor was very subtle, but the ginger was awesome. Certainly not a bad place for a treat.
