Five stars from my entire family. They had both traditional and off-the-wall flavors that were all served with a friendly smile.

So delicious! The most unique thing however was their flavors - my husband had a tamarind cinnamon flavor that he loved, and i had something with chocolate which i cant remember but it was so good! lol So creamy and flavorful, it was some of the best ice cream we've had in a long time.

I stopped in for the chocolate wasabi but they had run out. No matter! They had an amazing bananas fosteresque ice cream as well as Vietnamese coffee ice cream. I found the prices very reasonable compared to the other ice cream shops in the area and it was delicious!

I highly recommend it if in the area. Lots of unique flavors to try!
