A visit to this ice cream emporium is a must when in Normal. Great ice cream but they also offer coffee and smoothies. Nice outdoor area to enjoy your ice cream. The dipped waffle cone choices were great.

Nice ice cream shop with many flavors to choose from. Splurge and get a dipped waffle cone with your scoop of ice cream.

Some friends and I visited this place. It is a hole in the wall in Itaewon, near some indoor shopping markets, but it left a memorable impression. It is coolly decorated with a nice, relaxed vibe. It is actually an American chain, and as an...More
