Small ice cream cost more than $8. More than we spent in Nantucket. Ice cream was okay but should have been better for that price.

Buffy's loads you up with sprinkles (for FREE). In all seriousness their ice cream is awesome. Try the mint or coffee Oreo. Double scoop is only $1 more so don't be nervous to step up your ice cream game. It's your time now.

It is a delicious treat, more expensive I suppose than other places, but we have paid some crazy prices for good ice cream in Italy too. In a way it is good for a portion control ...one pretty big scoop is enough. The hard part...More

It was empty when we went in so we were served promptly, the lady was a bit surly, but the ice cream was fabulous, the pumpkin flavour was tremendous. We sat out the back on the benches and enjoyed it thoroughly.
