Love getting the mudslides, they are the best around! The food is average. Nice place to stop and get ice cream. There is always a wait on weekends, so be prepared.

It's a short 10 minutes away. From the SNHU Ctr, drive north on Elm st thru the downtown for a mile or so. Take Right at lights at Webster Street (Rte 3/28). Puritan is on your right in about another mile or so.
