If you want great ice cream, go to Tom's - best you will find. It's all homemade with delightful flavors. The decor has not been changed from "back in the day" and it's like stepping back into time. Highly recommend.

The ice cream is really good. I especially like the pumpkin that they have during the holidays. Parking is a challenge.

When you are off a diet this is the best place to cheat. Can't simply say no to the number 2 sundae of course with fresh nuts.
