Very good, smooth, soft serve. They have a way of blending in your toppings in such a way that you get some in every bite! Getting in and out proved difficult but worth it.

My husband worked there, and so that's how I know that it's closed permanently. They have another SweeTreats on the corner of 4th and Main that serves sandwiches and ice cream.

My friend had the BLT and it was the usual that you make at home. I, on the other hand had the yogurt. You choose vanilla or chocolate then add to it. I had the vanilla and added blackberries. They use the actual fruit and blend it which was very interesting to watch. Very yummy!

They have a special machine that incorporates the ice cream and mix-ins two times so the result is a wonderfully smooth texture that works well on a waffle cone.

I wanted to get an ice cream after dinner, but noticed when we walked down that they were closing at 6 , so I had one before dinner.

The chicken and wild rice soup was to die for. The special ice creams (you create your own flavors and mixtures) was not to diet for!!! My family has made this restaurant our first stop on our yearly trek to the mountains...and we've never been disappointed. The menu is somewhat limited (GREAT gourmet hot dogs, however)...but the aforementioned soup and... More

I had the fudge macadamia. It was very good. Indoor seating is available and helpful to us on a rainy day. They also serve sandwiches and soups,

Choose Vanilla or Chocolate, Ice Cream or Yogurt..and then add 'toppings', fruits, nuts, flavors and they blend it all together. I got peanut butter yogurt, was pretty good.

This is a very comfortable, friendly place. Sign on wall says turn off your phone and enjoy talking to your friends. Great idea!! Our cheeseburger was the best, our friends had quiche and said it was great. Highly recommend this stop.

Choose your base flavor (vanilla or chocolate) and then create your own treat with add-ins. This is a popular place and the line does not move really fast because each concoction is made to order. It's fun to read the board of suggested mix-ins and chat with people in line.
