Judith P.: "Some of the BEST desserts in the City! This is a great little date spot that's been here forever! The nostalgia is wonderful and it takes me back to a simpler time. The ice cream and candies are divine..."
Dee A.: "I mean, do I really have the explain how awesome this place is?!? Every single time I come here, I remember why I love it. The quality of the ice cream ingredients is delicious, as all flavors have the perfect blend of creamy, savory and sweetness...."
Christina N.: "I absolutely love visiting places that contain a taste of history and walking into this store it felt like I stepped back in time. Such a beautiful and authentic store, I loved gazing at all the antiques and Knick-knacks all around the store, wondering what the story was for every piece placed around the store. The ice cream was out of this world! So creamy and the fudge was so warm they absolutely complemented each other! Loved that this store stayed in its mostly original condition since they first opened, please keep it that way!"
To start, it's ranked as one of the best ice cream shops in the United States. A ranking they truly deserve because the ice cream genuinely tastes AMAZING."
