A lot of hype with this place, but it's really quite good. The range of traditional and more unusual flavors is extensive, and they make dozens of different sundaes. Fun and colorful, THE place to walk to from your rental home after dinner.

A lot of choices, but the inside is a little dingy. A kids ice cream is VERY small compared to just about everywhere else I've ever gotten ice cream, I'd stick with a single even for young kids. I got the milk & cereal which...More
