I found this restaurant on Pinterest and gave it a go. The amount of ice cream on their menu is extensive compared to their food, but it was all good. My raspberry lemon drop ice cream martini was probably 90% alcohol. If you just want...More

Loved this place from the Art Deco interior to the extensive "adult" ice cream drinks, sundaes, and sauces. Tried the lemon flip and ugly stepsister martinis and both were delicious!

I wanted to bring my 12 yr daughter and her 5 friends here, b/c I know they will love your desserts... but worried about your menu choices for kids. I love your food, but dont remember anything children would eat.... Do you have simple items or can they modify anything.
