Ici is a fun, ice cream place if you are adventurous. They often have fun, exotic flavors that almost always taste great. They also tend to have a regular flavor or 2 for those less adventurous. A must try when you're in town and wanting...More

In summer, many customers line up in front of this tiny little shop, but it is always worth waiting. I love their sorbets, for example a blend of coconut and passion fruit. They also offer seasonal ice cream like one with pumpkin for Thanksgiving. And...More

Great ice cream. Not your typical ice cream shop. Different flavors, my favorite is the lime marshmallow. You will not get heaping scoops that you are used to, but the flavors are worth it. The homemade cone is not to be missed. You will have...More
