Wandering by then was drawn in by both their coffee and their ice cream. Met the owners who were very nice and friendly. The coffee was perfect for our evening walk. The ice cream was rich and smooth and oh so tasty! I will return!

Stopped by for a shake and asked for it to be extra thick. Didn't happen, so thing you could drink it straight down. Never returned.

For some reason as soon as I saw the place I wanted to eat ice cream. They have a decent selection of flavors. I got the espresso ice cream with some chocolate chunks. That was sooo delicious. I usually don't like coffee flavoured ice cream...More
