This is a must visit place especially during the summer. Excellent ice cream and really friendly people.

The ice cream was delicious with so many great flavors to choose from. Not cheap though. $5.00 for a small cone. There was a long line but it went quickly with lots of people working.

Delicious chocolate pb in a waffle cone. I'd definitely come back, but kilwins might be better...the cones are warm over there.

Our kids love ice cream and we saw this shop and couldn't pass it up!! Delicious and the perfect treat on a hot day.

Many delicious flavors and ways to have your favorite desert. I find a single generous scoop is sufficient and each time I visit try a new flavor. Love the decor - really gives the impression of an old time ice cream shop.

This was a great find in Old Town on a hot night. They had some great flavors, and I decided on the peanut butter, chocolate, pretzel. It was so delicious. Price wise it was average, and my children loved it.

Amazing unique flavor offerings made this the highlight of our trip to Old Town. Highly recommended by the locals, so you know it had to be good! My daughter said it was the best ice cream she ever had, and that is saying a lot!

Pops Ice Cream Shop hit the spot on a warm Saturday afternoon, overall it was good, but not great. I was underwhelmed by my S'mores cone but my wife thought the Butterfingers Coffee was pretty good. Nice touch with the water jug and cups by...More

Great ice cream. Good place to get a cone or dish and continue a walk along King Street. Nice variety of flavors as well.
