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.

We stop here on the advice of friends and it was well worth it! They have quite a selection of homemade ice cream flavors, even several sugar free (my hubby had sugar free coffee flavor). A great cool down after you walked the wharf!
