We popped in here after walking around a bit. It was super clean, the employees were friendly and the milkshakes were so good! We both end up getting the Caramel Macchiato's. We also bought some yummy chocolates to take home. I would definitely go back!...More

Who doesn't love a good milkshake!? They have great flavors and they're made to order. These are some of the best milkshakes in the city.

Looking for vegan desserts, specifically milkshakes, look no further! Many flavor options for those like me who want a milkshake and are vegan.

My coworker and I were right in front of the place without even realizing we were there, as it just didn't look like a milkshake joint. But the atmosphere and milkshake quality/options were incredible, and I'd definitely make sure to go again if I'm ever...More
