Excellent smooth iced creams. Flavors true to their names. There should be a better way of serving customers. It takes s looooong time to get in the food and served if it’s a weekend. However it doesn’t stop people waiting and it was delicious.

The ice cream here is to die for, many flavors I like the strawberry but the vanilla is great too. The kids like the flavored ice cream. It is busy in the summers but ice cream is good anytime!!!

Would not recommend. Not friendly, overpriced for the portion given and very disappointed. Definitely not unique to warrant those prices.
