We have been coming here for years. The ice cream is made locally. They also have great fudge covered key lime pie. The key lime cheesecake ice cream is my favorite.

Rich ingredients in their ice cream and many flavors to choose from. The cheesecake dipped in chocolate on a stick is one of the best we’ve tasted. Lots of tables inside and out to enjoy your sweet treat!

We absolutely love this little gem. They have such a unique set up with many sundae options posted for you to choose from... and when I say many, it’s like 40 or more! We make sure everyone who visits that we take them here. It’s...More
