This ice cream shop is perfect for a little town. It looks old fashion on the inside and the ice cream choices are many. Good creamy ice creams.

Walked to this ice cream parlor while staying at Riley's Railhouse. Fast, friendly service. Tasty ice cream treats. We enjoyed sitting at the old fashioned counter.

Stopped in for dessert after dinner on Saturday. The young lady behind the counter was very attentive and helpful. She was willing to make a suggestion for me and she was right on with the choice.

We've been going to Dog Days since it opened a few years ago and love the atmosphere and service. The gelatto is fabulous and comes in subtle but delicious flavors like milk and honey and coconut.
