This ice cream spot is one of a kind, and run by friendly folks. Sales from a designated ice cream during a month benefit a "dreamer-" someone raising money for a positive dream. (I've seen charity causes as well as a guy saving for an engagement ring.) Fun flavors of shakes and ice cream, and very close to Market Square... More

We had icecream here after our Segway tour. It was really, really good, and each flavor has a locall "dream" behind it, and a portion of the sales for that flavor goes to that dream. Really awesome idea. Would like to see more of these!

I really like the mission of this place, and it helps that their ice cream was good and the flavors change up regularly.

Ice cream is very good with some unusual selections (movie time) and not so unusual (cookie dough, rum raisin). First time patrons receiving a round of applause. Seating is very limited. The premise behind the "dream" is a portion of sales for a particular flavor is given back for funding a personal cause (i.e., mission trip, study abroad).

I know that ice cream isn't the best food for me but considering that the profits go to great causes I felt the need to indulge. Each flavor supports a different cause and the people who benefit from the proceeds of the ice cream help run the shop. Not only is it a great concept but the ice cream was... More

Combining the deliciousness of perry's ice cream with the dreams of the city. I think I would get fat on this place if I lived in the city.

There was only one person working. He couldn't have been nicer but the wait was ridiculous. The poor guy...get him some help!

Cool Idea! People can raise money to start business or support charities by working there. The proceeds from the different flavors go toward different dreams. We happened to find it on our way back to our hotel and I am glad we did!

We stumbled into Dream Cream Ice Cream on a late summer evening. They waved us in, tempting us with free samples of exotic flavors of delicious ice cream. Most of the people that work there are volunteers who choose a flavor for the month. Part of the money from the sales of that flavor will go to the cause that... More
