Open til midnight, this spot O&O by the Carisbrooke Innkeepers is a great place to sample some classic ice cream flavors as well as mix and match ince cream and ices.

The sweetness level, texture, real fruit bits.....its an wonderful product they serve there at Mento's. everything here feels like someone cares about what they put out. It is family owned which explains it all. I really love this place. I would recommend it to everyone!
My absolutely favorite water ice joint in the world!
