I have not tried ice cream in all of CT so I can't judge if they are the best. However, they are very good, but I have had equally good ice cream in other locations. Drove a half hour to get here so my grandchildren...More

Wow this place is good. The vanilla creamy and full of flavor. The chocolate ice cream is not too chocolaty. Expect a line - but it moved really fast and its worth it!
