Nestled in the Nut Tree center this creamery offers a full range of menu items for kids and adults. Sanwiches and icecream dushes were big and yummy.

This place was okay. The desserts looked fantastic but did not try any. My pastrami sandwich was so greasy I couldn’t eat it.

Good food and fun family atmosphere. As a tradition since it opened, we go there every year to celebrate the kids last day of school. We go there for lunch, dinner or just for ice cream at other times also.
