They have a great selection of ice cream including vegan choices. I love the many different types of coffee and mocha ice cream. Also enjoyed their black raspberry with cherries and blueberries. The bad part is the wait. You wait to order and then you...More

Hi Jenniferhjones Thanks for your message. If you came this weekend, it was supremely busy for a post-Labor Day day/evening. We have worked hard over the years to streamline our order/preparation process and while we probably could have used another person, we had 8 people...More

This place has great ice cream. Definitely get some if you’re in Ithaca during the warmer months. They have vegan options also. I tried the cookie dough in chocolate which was very good.

Had to check it out as it was rated one of the best in the state. I firm!y agree. We managed to be there when it wasn't crowded, which I got the impression it can be. Chocolate milkshake was the best!!!

We (daughter, son and I) enjoyed the ice cream first, then decided we were also hungry so went to get seated for real food. "Eat Dessert First" is their motto and we followed it to the tee. We were not disappointed at all. The ice...More
