Wherever I go, I look for places specializing in ice cream treats. The milk shakes, the waffle cones or bowls make icecram more delicious. The serving size is large and delicious. Ice cream is a part of my daily diet so I am always thrilled when I see an ice cream deli close to my hotel.

Got 2 scoops of chocolate in a waffle cone. The scoops were huge! The waffle cone was nice and fresh. I thoroughly enjoyed my dessert!

After walking for hours, sit down and enjoy good ice cream in the courtyard. Many favors to choose from and the courtyard is pleasant with great architecture to view.

been to lots of ice cream places - it was a hot hot day (mid-90s) and ice cream hit the spot - but it was just so-so. Not bad, but not memorable. More expensive than it was worth but hey, would get it again if we wanted some.... :)

You can't fake good ice cream. I got a kids cup and was plenty. Popular place for a reason. I'm glad I tried it on advice from friends.

But if you are thinking of getting two scoops, you better be very hungry. A single is a double for most plsces

Wonderful ice cream and treats. Grab a bottle of water and rest at the outdoor tables. Do some people watching and plan what to see next at the estate.

Good choices and good ice cream you can enjoy in a cup or a cone. Grab an ice cream and enjoy out on the estate's vine covered patio or on your way to the gardens.

Good ice cream but we thought it was pricey. We got a single dip in a plastic cup for $5.00. I must say it was the best butter pecan I have eaten.

The estate ice cream parlor is a welcome respite from all the touring, wines, gardens, etc. They make great sundaes, waffle cones and shakes.
