This ice cream place has a variety of blue bell flavors and also some frozen yogurt. Three kid size ice creams were less than $5.

This little shop is in a historic building. There was a line for ice cream but it moved along quickly enough. It was small and little space inside, but perfect for a seat on the front porch on a nice day with an ice cream cone.

We wanted a snack between meals and decided to try ice cream cones here. They were premium ice cream in waffle cones, at a reasonable price. Quick service and pleasant tables and chairs outside in shade.

Stopped in the get a coffee and a latte, also picked up some Haribo gummies for the kids, they had a good selection. Wish we could have tried the ice cream but the kids were naughty so had to skip it this time 😉

We stopped by after a Madrid Gras Parade for ice cream. The shop offered many different flavors. We selected salted carmel and triple chocolate. Both were very creamy and full of flavor. There were lots of topping selections. Although we did not sample any, the pastries looked delicious.

Ice cream is so-so. Service was horrible. Guy behind the counter barked orders to file on through the door. After eating ice cream I went back for coffee, but the three girls behind the counter totally ignored me for five minutes--I even had cash in my hand! Terrible, terrible, and terrible.

Excellent for stopping there after shopping specially if you have kids or grandkids. Great atmosphere, sitting on the cute tables and chairs outside, enjoying the breeze and being able to carry on conversations...
