I dare you to walk down the sidewalk and pass this place without drooling. They make their waffle cones and exhaust the smell straight out to the sidewalk. You'll find yourself going in to this place before you realize you want to. Great ice cream...More

Great selection of flavors and toppings, helpful folks behind the counter. Not the cheapest, but great tasting ice cream. Grab a cup or a cone and head across the street to Blowing Rock park to sit and enjoy. The fudge is yummy too....
