Cece assembled me ice cream experience that challenged my senses (in a good way). She provided me with a sample taste of some flavored I didn't know to make sure I enjoyed my final choice. Ice creams & cones were fresh & well presented. The cafe gave seating options including booths and outdoor picnic tables. Friendly people & fun snacks

Surprisingly good value for the amount of ice cream that they pile on the cone. Friendly staff. Homemade chocolates and fresh cupcakes made daily.
