Doesn't get any better than this! The Botanical Gardens has a selection of three or four flavors and they are ALL delicious, and FULL of flavor. It's the best treat ever at the gardens and just adds to everything else wonderful there.

We stopped in twice on our recent trip for ice cream. They have some unique flavors such as ginger and even mushroom which we enjoyed. They were open until 9 while we were there so great place to stop after hiking along the beach.

This place is so cute and is obviously locally famous. We were in line behind a local couple who said they hardly ever venture out into town during the summer but every so often they break down and brave the crowds of tourists and come in for the mushroom ice cream—which was good, for sure, but kind of tasted exactly...

As good as fresh ice cream gets... all flavors yummy and flavorful. Gotta try the mushroom ice cream too which uses a local 'shroom that tastes like maple nut. Worth waiting in line...

I heard about mushroom ice cream from Cowlicks, so I wanted to try it. I got a sample and was pleasantly surprised that it is still sweet and still tastes like ice cream. I got a scoop and it was so good! The next day we had red ale ice cream made by Cowlicks and served at Tap Room, and... More

What a treat! Just be forewarned, scoops are generous, one is plenty, two is a whole lot!! The waffle cone is a must.

Cowlicks has a great selection of premium crafted screams and awesome selection of toppings and extras. I also like that they make their own fresh waffle cones right in front of you. Some faves if mine are the collate covered bananas and cherries.

When we went it was about 6:00 after dinner. The line was long (out the door) but it went quickly. The young people working the counter could use training in being more upbeat, but the ice cream was good...
