Yes, it's worth the wait. There are lot of choices when you get up to the window at Massey's, so try to have your order in mind when you get there since the space is so small. The custards are rich and creamy and good...More

My husband loves the chocolate malts. My grandson loves the soft serve and I love the hand dipped! My only complaint would be there are always young kids working who are not very attentive and are more worried with carrying on

My husband loves Massey’s. He always gets a large chocolate malt. I on the other hand do not care for it. It’s custard not ice cream and it makes me sick every time I eat it. Their portions are also never consistent. One time My...More

A typical one "scoop" of chocolate custard averages 270-295 calories. I don't know for sure, but I would guess closer to 500 calories for a large dish of chocolate custard. Totally worth it though!!!
