They have a short but worthwhile list of ice cream, and lots of home-made chocolates and candy apples. Very fun place for the kids, and the grownups too. We will be back. You should go.

We had to stop in for dessert after dinner @ Chickie's & Pete's right across the street. The ice cream is the creamiest best stuff on earth. And if you're not real hungry you can get 1 scoop of ice cream with hot fudge sauce (child's size). So delicious!

The place is very cute, looks like a chalet. They do not have many flavors of ice cream but what they have is excellent. Small sundae was the perfect size for a mid day snack. My son did not want ice cream so he had chocolate covered pretzel rods with sprinkles and they were very good also.

Homemade ice cream and other treats that are worth a ride to come here. We mainly go for ice cream and it never disappoints. They don't have a million flavors but it's always excellent. Building is modeled after an alpine chalet and staff is always friendly.

My family loves Zwahlens Ice Cream. We get the Egg Nog ice cream for every Christmas. This year we had vanilla because Zwahlens saved the Egg Nog for New Years Eve.

Best ice cream & chocolates in the area! Only chocolate & vanilla ice cream & one flavor of the day, but the taste is so good, that's all you need.

I went here for a birthday party for my son's friend. I didn't really order ice cream because it was for the children, and I wasn't in the mood for ice cream. I know when aren't you in the mood for ice ream. Well I am not a big ice cream person, however.... One day I decided to patron this... More

We love everything about this place!! It has the best ice cream and carmel apples on Earth! The handmade chocolates are divine. The store looks like a swiss chalet. The owners are often working there and the place runs like a top! We often buy take out ice cream for dessert to serve at our family holiday dinners and gatherings.... More

Th best ice cream; service takes some time but that's because milkshakes are made the old fashioned way and everything is fresh. A bit pricey, but what good ice cream isn't.
