This is an adorable spot in a perfect location. Enjoy a variety of wonderful flavors of excellent ice cream. You're welcome to eat inside or on the patio. I like to take my ice cream down to the pier, just a few blocks away.

Quaint mom/pop ice cream & espresso cafe. Great selection of wonderful tasting ice cream! Very helpful (and patient) staff with my big eyed indecisive children. FIVE STAR PLACE!

The ice cream was fine, a little pricey. Liked the outdoor seating but was hoping for more candy options as my girls love candy.
