We were 3 kids and 1 adult. There was something for everyone and the ambience is fun! Located right in the heart of downtown. Not a lot of parking unfortunately.

Friends and I stopped in to Cravings for some ice cream and weren't disappointed. There is a great atmosphere inside and the ice cream was delicious. They had a lot of different flavors and the staff was super great.

This is a cute location downtown. I loved the variety of flavor. I had the mint chocolate chip and my companion had the maple walnut and butter pecan. The flavored and amount of add-ons was great. The service was just ok. Almost like they could...More
