This is a great ice cream shop. Good variety of flavors, and good sized scoops of ice cream, best ice cream shop in town

A lot of choices in flavors. Kind of expensive for what you get, about $3-5 per small order. Fresh ice cream. Great taste. Close to the university.

Great ice cream flavor choices to choose from here. Had the salted caramel and it was very creamy and delicious. My hubby had the olive oil ice cream. Very nice cream flavor but the texture was not as creamy as mine. It was nice to see the IU students here enjoying their free time. Convenient location to walk from the... More

Instead of having dessert at the restaurant where we had dinner, our daughter suggested we go to Hartzell's, and I'm glad we did. The atmosphere was fun, the selections great, the ice cream was delicious and the service was incredible. The person taking our order kept giving us tastes that he thought we'd like to try - and we left... More

By far, hands down the best ice cream. I hear the owners also own the creamery in town probably accounts for why their ice cream is so good. Creamy and they've really nailed their flavors. I continue to search for comparable ice cream in southern california and so far, nothing. The closest I've found that's as good was in New... More

It was good. My husband and I got "Spinners" which are basically their version of a DQ Blizzard. I got s'mores, hubby got mud pie. We were both pleased. About $10 for two smalls. We're not from Bloomington, so not familiar with the menu which was hard to read from the back of the line. As soon as you get... More

best in town, try the unusual sorbets and asian flavored ice creams. Not the best I've had (Toscaninis in MIT or Amys in Houston were better), but they are the best in B Town.

Its popular on hot weekend days so be patient. You will be rewarded with really good ice cream hand dipped in lots of great flavors. Not a lot of seating space but you were going to walk around downtown anyway, right?

Just one block away from Sample Gate, super convenient location. Have different flavors. They will offer you free ice cream sample to taste before you make your decision. Waffle Cone is my favorate.

With all the restaurants on kirkwood, this is a good place to get ice cream after. It's a small location but the ice cream is delicious and portions are awesome! Their "spinners" (like a McDonald's mcflurry) are great and filling enough, I got a small and they fill it up to the brim.
