This place has delicious homemade ice cream and sherbet. They also have coffees and res. My husband loved the peanut butter cup ice cream and I loved the pineapple sherbet which had ground pineapple in it. The place is busy but the wait is short!

Screw the diet and go for the ice cream! If you've ever had home made ice cream, you will have a special appreciation for the flavors this ice cream parlor has been able to produce. On second thought, go for the SUNDAE!
