It is a delicious treat, more expensive I suppose than other places, but we have paid some crazy prices for good ice cream in Italy too. In a way it is good for a portion control ...one pretty big scoop is enough. The hard part...More

It was empty when we went in so we were served promptly, the lady was a bit surly, but the ice cream was fabulous, the pumpkin flavour was tremendous. We sat out the back on the benches and enjoyed it thoroughly.

The line out the door at Buffy's tells you a ton. The wait was well worth it and the ice cream was top notch. Friendly scoopers. Place has been in business for a long time.
