It doesn't live up to the hype it gets. Ice cream is expensive and grainy. Service was somewhat decent for us, but I've heard a lot of people have gotten incredibly rude service here.

Various types of ice cream,frozen yogurt, Gelato,sherbet by cone. Also sells Locally-owned St.Laurent's nuts and candy. Favorite local hangout in warm weather with strolling and drive up patrons.

Love their flavours, we think this is the best icecream in town and its all made there. You can take quarts etc to go and they will make custom icecream cakes. The cakes are ok but huge and we rarely finish them.

We stopped in late one night just before closing. Delicious chocolate icecream in a handmade waffle cone.... it sure hit the spot and they didn't skimp on the ice cream either!

Incredible selection of unique flavors; the Michigan-themed ones are family favorites! Something for everyone, including floats, sorbets and cakes. Prices are reasonable, and servings are larger than expected (a "single" is two large scoops, and you can have different flavors!). The owner is very friendly, and has great employees working-they are always helpful and smiling. Great place to get a... More

This is like the old fashion ice cream shop. They have a variety of flavors that rotate. My favorite has always been the Wake Up Call. If you like coffee ice cream, this one is for you. During the winter they have a limited selection but offer a variety of nuts and other goodies.

They have a huge selection of flavours and the servings are large, we usually have the smallest kids cone and it is plenty. They do icecream cakes as well and they feed a lot of kids! Look for the $10 special deal on cones for the family.
