A fun ice cream parlor in Riverton with special attention to our party! Try, if you dare, THE TRAIN WRECK Banana split with 5 scoops of ice cream and a glorious variety of fruit toppings and yes, whipped cream and a cherry. BELGIAN WAFFLES are on the menu too. Enjoy your party.

Best thing about this place is the atmosphere! Very cute with the decorations, especially the train! Worst thing is parking however there is a public parking lot about a block away. Biggest disappointment is that the ice cream is just your standard ice cream. Nothing home made, nothing special.

A small town ice cream shop with friendly staff and great ice cream. Good to support a local place trying to make it.

Love the Ice Cream. Takes me back to my childhood days. Bassetts Ice Cream. The Shop has a nice vintage atmosphere.

My boyfriend and I came here and each ordered a standard chocolate milkshake. I was shocked when I saw the total came to $10 and some change. $5 for a milkshake?!? After I paid I was expecting the most decadent and satisfying milkshake I'd ever had, however was left in disappointment. The "milkshake" was mostly milk with a splash of... More

My kids and I love this place. It's a great place for some ice cream and to hang a bit. The decor is fun, the service fast and friendly, and it's uniquely Riverton.

I can't be happier with the parlour this season since changing management! Awesome new taste of ice cream. The staff is friendly (hands out balloons to my kids). Old time feel. Love it!

The scookies at Nellie Bly's are huge and delicious. You don't have to worry about leaving hungry ever. Also, the atmosphere is great. You feel like you are in an old time ice cream parlor.

We no longer live in the area but still enjoy stopping by when we're in the area. You can't beat the concoctions they make with yummy bassets ice cream. Plus the new candy wall adds to the old fashioned appeal.
