Ice cream makes everything better. I got the sea salt Carmel brownie and malt vanilla in a waffle cone. Both very good ice cream. Friendly staff. Only con: no seating.

The store is very clean and pretty with a terrific location. The flavors are fun, albeit limited. The ice cream is delicious. Prices are pretty high, but we are very willing to pay more for their products.

Excellent variety of custom flavors. They had me at salted caramel pretzel! Get two scoops so you can try two different flavors. You won't be disappointed!
