Do yourself a favor and get a Joe-Latti at this joint! The family found out new favorite desert here. Wish there was one in Australia! Service was outstanding also! If I could give more than 5 stars, I would!!

Great place for a cool treat, but prepared to wait in a line because this place is always busy! It's a fun alternative to frozen yogurt!

I ate here twice in two days. I wasn't as impressed with the peanut butter sundae as I was with the pineapple Italian ice, but I wouldn't turn it down either. It was a unique treat while in the area.

It doesn't matter what time of day it is, there is always a ton of people in line there. So, my friends and I decided to stop one day, years ago. Loved it!! The food and the ice-cream were delicious. I have been at the new location and I still like it, but the prices have gone way up. I... More

Been coming here for years. The original location was just down the street. Yes their expensive but well worth the splurge every now & then. They also have regular hand scooped ice crème.

I had a mango Italian ice and if was great. Very fresh tasting mango flavor and good creamy consistency. Would love to try some other flavors next time I'm in town.

I thought $13.00 was a bit much to pay for two sundaes but it was worth it. My husband and I probably could have shared one and been fine. Lots of choices and a clean, bright place.
