Living in the area 2 years and had to have family from Texas to find it for us! So good we went back 2 nites in a row. I thought it was a bit pricey, but very good. Limited seating, but chairs/tables become available pretty quickly. Great find. WIll be back!!

This is a fun ice cream shop for kids and families. The staff is ALWAYS so friendly to us! It is conveniently located downtown Elmhurst with free parking nearby. Their prices are very, very reasonable too and they are usually very generous with their scoops.
