Best ice cream! Love this place. We have made several visits here and can’t wait to go back. The key lime pie ice cream is wonderful. A “small” cone is more than enough.

I thought this place would be great. It was much more than that. Service, quality of food, size of portions, taste - all amazing. Hey, it ain't a ten star setting, but if you are looking for what really counts, this is the place.

Outstanding place for a quick lunch. So much better than fast food. Everything on the menu is great, but the BLT is exceptional. The french fries are also some of the best around. Really good ice cream is just a bonus!
