We have stopped by for ice cream at this dessert restaurant for many years. There are all sorts of tasty sweets . We prefer the German Chocolate ice cream. Another favorite ( no longer available) is malted milk ball ice cream.

The bar is a chocolate heaven. The simple chocolate bars are probably the best way to appreciate their craft a a fine flavor and texture. I did enjoy the giant layer cakes. Enough to overwhelm the whole family. The bonbons did not stand out though....More
