My first experience here and boy was it great! It’s still got that small town feel with personable help. I ordered a single sugar cone & it was the size of a triple and I couldn’t eat it fast enuf!! So delicious.

Best ice cream I’ve ever had! Portions are large and staff was very polite and super helpful. I’m sure the location at the pier is excellent (not open when we visited).

Thank you for the inquiry about the trampolines but we no longer have them. We took them out in the early 70's. It was partly because of insurance liability reasons but also to expand and improve our parking lot.
