This was great ice cream and the servings are HUGE. They had lots of flavors to choose from, both soft serve and packed. You can get a bowl or a number of different types of cones.

Located on the main street in a small walk in store. Not much ambiance. Benches outside for eating your cones, Some homemade and some factory, Choices of cones, etc. Sizes from kiddie to obese. Hope this helps.
