Ice cream is delicious and cheaper than Mouse’s. Much prefer this place. Cute inside with seating. Located in the front of the old Opera house.

Visited this shop and Mouse's. The Candy Company had a better selection of ice cream at about half the price. Good candy selection also,

We've been here before but this last time was very disappointing. The service was very poor. It took forever to get through the ice cream line. However, the fudge was delicious! Too bad the service was so terrible, we would have gone back.
