I go out of my way home after work to stop here! I especially love the Mint Patty Explosion frozen yogurt. There is an excellent variety of flavors, th eice cream is delicious and fresh tasting. I would highly recommend it! It closes around mid October for the winter.

For the price I always get a large. Getting a large is probably about a 1/4 gallon of ice cram and could fill anyone up.

Can't wait for summer to go grab some ice cream with my family. We always ask for something different and we have always loved it. Prices are on the high end but portions are HUGE... So we always share and for sure we will all get enough!

Lots of favors to choose from. The ice cream is very good! I had a sundae - the hot fudge is more like a Hershey's syrup consistency than a thick fudge sauce. Nice area to sit outside and friendly service. Pretty good size portions.
