I thought it would be more old fashioned or offer more locally made stuff But all the ice cream was Eddy's. Good and nice service but I can buy Eddy's at the store! It didn't feel old fashioned at all.

There are nuts in many of their specialties, I can't speak for Scoops, but I think there is a high risk of cross contamination.
