Little ice cream shop - simple but with lots of choices! Soft serve, shakes, custard concretes, fro-yo, etc... prices were reasonable and the ice cream was good! Plus, we were able to stop and go quickly!

Even though it's been a while since this review, it really delights us to know that we were still able to bring back good memories even 25 years later. Gotta love that Orange Sherbet! Hope we'll see you again before long. -Weathervane Ice Creme Team

Doesn't have the name sake like Ted Drewes BUT does have just as good or better ice cream. You get A LOT for your money. Haven't came across a menu item I didn't like. A MUST if you like ice cream.
