They have some typical flavors like vanilla bean, but then they have some that are very unique, such as the goat cheese and fig jam, that are creative and tasty! Wonderful customer service also, can't wait to go back!

Fruitty Pebbles is my absolute favorite and it is gluten free! We also love the Brambleberry Cobbler and Valrhona Dark Chocolate. The use of fresh ingredients make the difference in their ice cream. Lots of optioms for everyone!

This place is worth all your Weight Watchers points for the week it’s so good! Unusual flavors, great toppings- caramel sauce to die for, and my kids swear the hot fudge is too! We’ll definitely make this our dessert spot in town.

We keep going back and never are disappointed. The chocolate is literally out of this world (Best I've had anywhere in US or Europe). The other flavors have a simplicity and straightforwardness that reflects their real ingredients and wholesome creation. This ice cream is really...More
