We came here after flying kites across the street. Lots of flavors to choose from and service was great. The little one loved coffee flavor the best. We also got Oreo and mandarin chocolate chip. It was a nice way to end the day!

The staff here sing while your ice cream is being served, very entertaining. The ice cream is homemade and that also made it special, loved this place.
