Small place with limited parking, off the main street, but once you find it you'll be glad you did! Family owned and operated, with a wide selection of flavors

We decided to treat ourselves to ice cream here. The selection was overwhelming. I chose almond praline. It was the best ice cream I HAVE EVER EATEN. At 4$ for a baby cone it SHOULD be.,

Great ice cream but was more fun to go to in original location. Used to be home made, not sure if that's still the case but still really good

We went there on a recommendation of our hotel staff. We chose to walk there in 30C+ weather. It took about 15 minutes. To our disappointment we got there only to find a closed sign. I had no idea what time it was (on vacation).the sign said it opened at 2pm. So not really looking forward to walking all the way back empty handed I peered into the window to see if there was a clock that would help me decided to wait it out or not. As I was peering in someone opened the door and informed me it was only 1pm! She also said she would be happy to serve us early! What can I say, the best service ever.

Love to stop here - my son's favorite ice cream parlor - lots of variety including sundaes and malts, root beer floats, smoothies, you name it! Small family style ice cream parlor - but they only accept cash! Love to sit on their porch enjoying the ice cream, after a hot day on the beach.
