We love ice-cream so we couldn't pass this place up! It was very tasty and lots of options. They are ALWAYS busy, so be prepared to wait a bit. They also have other things besides ice-cream.

Wandered over here after dinner. They are the only place in town that has Sherman's Ice Cream and you don't have to drive out to the Sherman's Dairy Bar. Best ice cream ever!
