OK, the shakes are so good here I even get one when I visit Colgate in the freezing middle of winter. And bringing a box of their chocolates home always makes me immensely popular!

Quaint little ice cream and chocolate shop in the college town of Hamilton, NY. Service was great and ice cream was delicious! I recommend the pumpkin praline while it's available in the fall! Great local shop to visit.

Loved all the truffle and chocolate choices. Pick your own pieces and make your own boxes. Love the old fashioned soda shop too.

Stopped by for a few treats for the car ride home. Wonderful assortment of chocolate. Very friendly young woman working. Answered our questions, made suggestions. Well worth the stop for gift or treat for yourself.
