Amazing flavors that will be sure to please. From sweet to savory, this place is not afraid to experiment. My favorite flavor so far was the Thai Iced Tea, with the Grahm Masala(sp?) a close second. But they all look AMAZING!!!! And most of the ones I've tried have been. If you ever find you self in the area be... More

Don't let the lines discourage you. It moves fast as there are sometimes up to 7 people working behind the counter. Inventive flavors (Stranahan's whisky) and delicious ice cream brings customers back again and again. They typically have about 20 different flavors and they rotate different ones in every week. My wife practically lived here during her pregnancy.

But my son loves the cherry basil, and it is unusual and absolutely... More

This place has a great old school ice cream shoppe vibe but with very modern flavors which pairs nicely with the hipsters serving you ice cream. We went on an weekday evening and the line was out the door but it moves fast. They let you taste before you commit which helps to narrow down the numerous delicious concoctions available.... More

Grabbed this for dessert after dinner on Broadway. Very cool street to just walk and explore different shops. Tried the vietnamese coffee and it was delicious. You can sample before you buy also, which is helpful.

We got the vanilla bean and chocolate whoopie ice cream. It was good and not too sweet. However, the ice cream wasn't out of this world good.

Good ice cream. Cones are amazing. Limited flavors and some are vegan. Fun little shop with garage doors that open when the weather is nice.
