We went there both nights on BI. They have a great selection of ice cream and the staff was very nice. Seems like most of the young employess on BI are from Eastern Europe. They are all very polite and speak very good English.

We were very impressed with the quality of the ice cream, the many Flavors from which to choose, and the very friendly service. It was especially nice that there was a patio to enjoy our late night dessert.
