This location is right in the center of town on the edge of an open plaza with several other businesses. All the outside benches and tables make it perfect for a treat with people watching. They not only have ice cream but an enormous variety...More

Lots of sweet treats and ice cream. Very crowded during our visit. Fudge was delicious. Pralines were good too but not as good as Riverstreet.

Great ice cream and fudge. In wonderful little square down town with outdoor patio tables. We have been many times and go back every year.

We were in the park waiting for the great Eclipse of 2017. But we decided we had enough time to get some ice cream so we walked over - We had 4 different flavors and shared - everyone enjoyed!

On our regular visits to Highlands we always stop by Kilwin's for an ice cream and to ship chocolates and goodies home to the grandkids. It has become a tradition and the service and value are first class.

This place is a fudge haven. Chocolate dipped chocolate. We had the dark double chocolate and the salted caramel milk chocolate. The place has ice cream and sodas, they ship their products which could be dangerous..
