Yes, be prepared to wait on a long line. Very good ice cream. My vegan son found several flavors that fit his diet. She unusual flavors as well as the regular ones. Some seating inside , but not a lot.

Their ice cream is amazing, very tasty! I had one scoop of earl grey and I told the staff to surprise me with the second flavor and they picked for me Honeycomb and they were both awesome ♥ I recommend!

Not cheap, but some delicious ice cream. Very sweet. There was a long line, but it moved fast. There is indoor seating, and there is also some outdoor benches.

All the ice cream choices be it flavors, toppings, cone or cup along with non dairy ice cream which tastes good make this a good choice if you scream for ice cream. Be prepared for a wit on a hot day.

Great flavors, great texture, great service, LOVE this place! Worth seeking out again and again, especially if you need vegan options. Honeycomb gelato is a knockout.
