The Zanzibar Chocolate and Peanut Butta were fantastic. Other good flavors, good cookies and chocolate bananas. Prices are very reasonable and comparable to DQ. My family of four spent $14 total. Plenty of seating and staff was friendly.

Chocolate, chocolate everywhere! Amazing caramel apples. Hand dipped ice cream. The smells are amazing. A nice walk from the Overature Center after a show or art exhibit.
