This shop is the quintessential neighborhood ice cream shop! It is a close walking distance for the nearby homes. The ice cream had great flavor. Only wish the servings had been a little more generous.

Fabulous home made ice cream, creamy, creative flavors all made in small batches. I highly recommend the salted caramel flavor. She also makes ginger ice cream. Her flavors are brilliant, delicious. There might be a waiting line, but certainly worth the wait!
