Thrilled to find SoCo when we haad a hankering for ice cream on a Sunday evening. Staff was very knowledgeable, and proud, of their flavors and offerings. Even got my teen to try flavors he never would have chosen on his own. Prices comparable to what we are used to in D.C. Area but quality was above average.

Justly famous, especially the salted caramel flavor. Worth breaking your diet for. Almost as good as the US's best ice creamery in Santa Barbara, CA.

I sampled this amazing ice cream last night, and LOVED it. I heard that they were selling it in Fairway's and Whole Foods but eventually stopped. I'm sad that this is the only place to taste this wonderful ice cream. The expresso cookie -- ahhh!!!

Great place to go for homemade creamy ice cream. Always fresh ice cream and a variety of flavors. Try a shake or sundae. Great place for kids, or to take the family out. The place can get crowded on weekends and in the summer. Park on Main St., or at the end of Railroad St.parking lot and walk over. Staff... More

Every time we are in GB my son and daughter insist that we stop by SoCo. We are never disappointed with the ice cream.

If your in the mood for a great cone or cup of ice cream thus is the place. It was probably the best ice cream I've had east of the Mississippi. Only the best ingredients from around the world coupled with the finest creams from New England.

Long lines but they move fast. Ice cream is as good as it gets. Particularly recommend the Dirty Chocolate. The staff are very nice and you can taste the flavors. Two locations around the corner from each other. One location has soft server ice cream the other regular ice cream .

Locally made ice cream in generous servings. If you're into that sort of thing, how could you go wrong?!
