We were attending a concert in front of the Story Telling Headquarters and after drinking a beer and eating BBQ, ice cream sounded great. Thankfully JJ's was just down the street. Very good.

I only had ice-cream there. I couldn't just pass the shop with my kids. The staff was very kind, and the ice-cream was very good. I liked it there because it was not too sweet. Loved here!

The food was really good, a little over priced, and service slow, but over all it was good. The store was very cute, and the town is very quaint and a lot to see. Most of the natives were friendly.
