Was looking for something sweet after dinner and wandered into Maxwell's. Ice-cream was delicious but would have appreciated a few more flavors. Nice candy selection as well.

There's nothing better than stopping by Maxwells during the summer for a cone, shake, coffee, or bit of candy. My only beef is that they should stock more local ice cream (from Purity in Ithaca).

OK, the shakes are so good here I even get one when I visit Colgate in the freezing middle of winter. And bringing a box of their chocolates home always makes me immensely popular!

Quaint little ice cream and chocolate shop in the college town of Hamilton, NY. Service was great and ice cream was delicious! I recommend the pumpkin praline while it's available in the fall! Great local shop to visit.
