WE LOVE THIS PLACE!!! If you have a major sweet Jones going on, then this will be your one stop shop. There is a lot of varieties in the ice creams and the cones. There are even small sizes available for people who cannot or may not have alot. There is a ton of salt water taffy available as well as chocolate candy. There was a treasure hunt game going on. Although there are a few souvenirs that could have been knocked over, the clerk came from behind the counter to tell our girls how the game worked and played with them to get them started. I was impressed with her time and patience. This was a great idea during the holiday season. A repeat stop for us every time we visit!!!!

Ice cream was really good but the selection of taffy is AMAZING! Flavors we never seen before. The kids also really enjoyed picking out all the different gummy candy from the bins. The girl helping us was super friendly. Of course we bought way too much candy :) Will definitely be back on our next visit to EI.

We went for ice cream 1 of 4 within a 4 block radius! Nice choices, staff helpful with selecting a popular flavor. Also found salty water taffy to bring home for friends that you can pick yourself not pre packaged flavors! Cute gifts also . Small size for all they offer. About 8 rocking chairs on porch to eat ice cream at and few small tables inside, would be nicer with more room! Would still visit again!

We stopped in one evening, in search of ice cream after dinner. Nice place, tons of friendly enthused staff, working hard. Long Line moved quickly inside the store area... and lots of stuff to browse and check out as your moved towards the ice cream counter. a GREAT VARIETY of flavors, and included several non dairy options for possible lactose intolerant folks. Two scoops was a LOT of ice cream.

Love this sweet little shop. I must confess I have never had their ice cream. We go every year for the amazing taffy. My kids are teenagers now and they still have to get their very own bag of customized flavors. It's really the best taffy and the flavors are fantastic.

It's also a cute little souvenir shop with jewelry, bags, t-shirts and an entire wall of neat signs. Our family has made this store part of our beach traditions.
