I love this ice cream especially the Green tea flavor. Also, even strict vegans can have the sorbet which comes in several flavors

Went in on a freezing New Year's Eve and were treated to great ice cream. Peppermint stick was quite good, and the peanut butter chip was very much enjoyed as well. The only complaints would be that the sizes are not as large as other...More

I know you've heard how amazing their ice cream is. Yes, good flavors and quality ice cream. But the overall experience stinks. Surly service, ice cream kept very soft so they can scoop more easily, atmosphere is without charm, and it's expensive! They need a...More

Great, creamy ice cream, and a great selection of flavors to choose from. I enjoyed a salted caramel, and others enjoyed maple walnut, oreo, etc. There are nuts and other toppings that can be added, too.

My husband and I both really enjoyed the ice cream. I had the fresh mint and it was very refreshing. He had the peanut butter ice cream and loved it. It wasn't too expensive. Definitely a great place for fresh and tasty ice cream!

Another Cambridge gem located on Cambridge street, a street filled with restaurants and bars. Exotic flavors keep the locals coming back for more. Small place where the customers come first. Try the coffee oreo.

Homemade! Not, Richardson's homemade, (SO many places 'round here claim homemade then, the Richardson's truck pulls up) the real thing. It's creamy and rich tasting it's got no aftertaste or saltiness to it...flavors are endless. I'm a weird flavor kinda girl. Christina's has ginger, bean,...More
