Went here in autumn 2017. I chose the vanilla bean flavor. The ice cream had a great consistency; it was really smooth and creamy. There were no gummy, rubbery parts, and no ice crystals. The problem was that there simply wasn't much flavor. The vanilla...More

This place is great, with great ice cream and all kinds of other chocolate goodies. Skip dessert at the restaurant and stop in here instead.

I went here for the first time last week and the ice cream was outstanding. The staff was very helpful and offered tastes of various options before we ordered. We were in and out quickly and overall very satisfied with the entire experience.

Several of us went here after dining downtown. Prepare to wait a while on a Saturday night, which was fine with us. Very high quality ice cream. Would recommend, will go back.
