We found this place after wondering the streets of Camden. Must be very popular judging by the lines up to the counter. Not to worry, the staff efficiently handled the orders and the lines moved quickly. Very good ice cream and the view from the...More

Good ice cream, good service, good music choice (for the most part), and great location! You can sit on the bridge over the river that is next to the ice cream and smell the flowers and watch the ducks while enjoying your refreshment.

Hershey’s ice cream deserves more respect. It’s the unsung hero of packaged ice cream. Cappuccino crunch, moose tracks, the list goes on. Always good. Always the underdog. Nice place to sit outside too.

Great choices, delicious and creamy. Cute little stand right over by the “River Walk.” How can you say no to ice cream? Make sure to check it out...large serving sizes. All types of sundaes and specialty flavors available. Enjoy!

Delicious ice cream, some creative flavors, great staff all headed off to college :). Lots of jimmies (sprinkles) added when we asked for them. Overall a great tucked away spot right next to the gorgeous flower bridge!
