Great place to have desert in Ely after dinner. I had a chocolate malt and my wife a chocolate shake, our friends had cups of frozen custard. All were really good. Well worth a stop.

Very Good Custard! A little expensive for ice cream but so worth it. Bring cash, they do not accept credit cards.

Line moved quickly and frozen custard was delicious. Flavor of the day was coconut. A few picnic tables to sit and eat, or you can walk through downtown Ely.

Excellent frozen custard, with vanilla, chocolate and a special daily flavor. The turtle sundae is amazing. My wife and I come often. Thank goodness we stay a few miles out of town or we would have a sundae every day. Highly recommended.

Stopped here after a day of shopping in Ely. Just happened to be driving by when they were opening. People working were friendly and the service was fast.
