Not many neighborhood places left to get soft serve and I cream sundays. This place has the best ice cream and milkshakes. The staff are very friendly.

I've been coming here since I was a young kid. Now I start the summer with my daughter with enjoying a dipped top cone sitting in the trunk of our SUV. Delicious ice cream and large portions for a great price. Great service!
