We look forward to the Zesto opening every year. The Sherbet is always delightful and when they have their peaches, the cobbler is the best!!

We visit here at least once a week during the season! The ice cream is amazing and there are tons of options! My favorite is a seasonal called peach cobbler! Kids love the dirt cups and sherbet that changes flavors every few days! Must stop in the capital!

Daily flavors! Lots of deluxe sundaes including peach cobbler. A huge serving of Vanilla ice cream covered in Carmel sauce with fresh peaches and pecans. Yum!

The decadent toppings and varieties of ice cream flavors from top quality products that you will enjoy let you know the wait in line (because there is ALWAYS a wait, even when it is -20!) is totally worth it! I love the muddy river for a treat but A plain cone or hot fudge sundae never disappoints. Spend your time... More

While this little Mom and Pop Shop serves food, EVERYBODY loves and lines up for the ice cream. Cone on in and enjoy this hot spot on a hot day.

Took the family for some treats. Very friendly service! Small seating area outside but it is on a busy street. My kids were hyper on the sweets and wanted to run around but there was nowhere near. Next time we will take the treats to a park
