First off, Ice-Cream is ok, nothing special. Like that there is a place in Valpo that makes its own ice-cream. Decor is fun, but could use some cleaner floors and tables cleaned off once in a while. U PAY based on Weight!!! very weird considering...More

Great atmosphere, and even better ice cream. Lots of flavors to choose from, and the ice cream is better than any chain. A must stop.

This place is definitely good and a hidden gem in Porter County. Ice cream is wonderful and they have lots of kookie combinations. A great stop for the kids and if you want to try something you can always get a free sample

Can't say this is Valpo's best because it's the only one we've tried but after eating their Salted Caramel I doubt I will go anywhere else. Excellent texture and flavor. Love the feel inside. Love that its a family business for 70 years. Can't wait...More

Decided to find someplace to get ice cream on a recent stay in Valpo. Super cute decor and delicious ice cream. We only tried cones, but their menu has a ton of selections. Add this to your "must try" list for a Valparaiso visit.
