I've been here a couple times and really enjoyed it. Of the flavors I tasted, my favorite is Oreo mint. The only downside is the price, but in Old Town everything is expensive. There are sometimes lines out the door, but the service is pretty quick.

If you want value for money, you've got it! The ice cream scoops were just too huge even for a single scoop! We had to share it after getting our first.

We were in the mood for milkshakes after leaving NYC. The taste was good, but not worth the price. They had a large variety of ice cream that is made in house.

A great ice cream spot in Old Town. So many flavors, how do you decide? Go with lots of friends who will share so you can try a few :)

Sure, it is not gelato. But it is - I guess - ones of the best ice-creams I have eaten so far. They offer a huge variety of flavors including carrot cake, but also more traditional ones like plain chocolate. A little too heavy for me but was worth trying.

Was a recommended spot and well worth it. The ice cream seemed different - home made. I had the pistachio and it was exceptional.

It was around $16 for our family of three. We each had "one scoop", and my husband had a cone rather than a paper cup. No sprinkles or mixes, just a scoop of ice cream.
