Exactly...good but not extraordinary. I had exposed ice at the bottom. I had coconut cream and hubbs had ice cream with cream. Both were ok. Do not have to go back. Another couple of places in the city had much better snowballs.

Since they were the only snoball stand at the FQF says a lot. The ice cream snoball was good. I hear they are the stand that puts snoballs in an Asian food take out container. I would try them again.

Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s
