Good ice cream in cones and ice cream favorites like shakes and sundaes. Great on a warm day with plenty of outside seating. It is an old caboose so kids in particular love it. Open evenings for that after dinner treat.

This is a great place for a nighttime stop on a warm summer evening. Prices are a bit on the high side but good ice cream.

We've gone multiple times throughout the summer always great. The fresh baked waffle cones are amazing! Can't miss a visit to the red caboose.

In East Aurora visiting my grandchildren, 7 and 10. My job that day was to pick them up from camp at Hamlin Park. As soon as they were settled in the car they wanted to "show" me the Red Caboose.

Loved thE novelty of stopping for ice cream at a little red caboose! Found this place quite by accident and had to stop for a cool treat. They must do a fairly good business as there was a steady stream of customers in the time it took us to get and eat our ice cream at the nearby picnic tables.... More

Stopped by while driving around site-seeing. Prices were fair and had lots of selections of ice cream (some we don't have at home which I always like to see).

This place is a fun place for kids and adults. The train that runs along the edge of the caboose is entertaining. A nice selection of ice cream from Perry's. I especially like the turtle sundae with soft ice cream!

After a game, movie, shopping or a neighborhood walk, this is a nice spot for a casual ice cream cone. As it's name implies it is in a genuine old red caboose. Eating is out of doors on picnic tables, ice cream is very good & quanity is great.
