Summer and Rays Water Ice and Custard. Can't beat a Rays Rocket. Vanilla Custard with Peanut Butter Ice is out of this world. Highly recommended. Everything is a great choice! Enjoy.

I always walk their to get ice cream with my friends since it is local to me. The business is run by a Mother and Son. It is really good ice cream! The wait can be long occasionally.
