It has been years since our last visited to this ice cream parlor. The ice cream still taste great and it is an easy walk (depending on your location) or drive. The day we went, there was no line up as compared to going to...More

A really fun place to take the kids. Lots of flavours of ice cream to choose from. It's a retro looking shoppe. When I was there, there was a piano. My son of course had to try it out (even though he cannot play the...More

Stopped in for a cool treat on an incredibly hot July day! I chose the lemon sorbet in a cup and that was just perfect because it didn't drip like my husband's blueberry cheese cake ice cream cone once we got outside. Both flavours were...More

Really, too many flavours is my ONLY complaint! SOOOOOOOOO hard to choose. It is a fantastic place for a date, or to go with your kids, to take and impress out of town guests for a really great small town feel, in the city! Enjoy!!!
