Third Bowl made my kids dream come true. They wanted a donut cake for their wedding cake. Third Bowl went all out decorating the donuts in lucious colors and even made a blonde bride and ginger groom atop the stacks.

Good variety of flavors for the ice cream lovers. They do offer a few non-dairy options including sorbets and ice cream made with coconut & almond milk instead. Even have a tasty treat for the 4-legged patrons. They also serve the biggest fluffy donuts around!...More

Tough time choosing between a dark chocolate, blood orange ice cream (sample was heavenly) or the raspberry lemonade sorbet! Went with the sorbet and was very pleased. This little ice cream shop is upstairs and not that easy to find but well worth the effort!!
