Many Flavors to choose from. Staff was friendly. It was a perfect dessert after our meal. Will have a tough time finding a parking spot but that is part of the fun.

The ice cream was good but overpriced. I paid $6.50 for two scoops in a regular waffle cone. I was surprised when I was told the total.
