I ordered a vanilla ice cream in a large waffle cone dipped in the chocolate peanut butter sauce. The cashier said it was his and his co-workers favorite. It was a huge disappointment at first bite for me. The chocolate peanut butter coating was weak tastewise, barely any chocolate or peanut butter flavor and the ice cream, although smooth and...

You walk in and wait too order while you look at the menu, then you order and within 2-3 minutes you have your scrumptious icecream

Its da bomb. Its great ice cream no doubt. Try all types but milkshakes ,that are thick are great. Choose a flavor, butter scotch is amazing.

This isn't the best ice cream in Jax but they do offer dipped cones with flavors you won't find anywhere else. It's simple ice cream and it's good. The most important part - my kids enjoy it. The one on San Jose is located in a strip mall and has a few indoor tables to sit at. Our favorite dipped... More

I'm really bummed that this was not the jam I was hoping for. If you are not ridiculously picky about your soft serve like I am then this will probably work for you. But, I'm totally high maintenance about my ice cream and this just tasted like cheap ingredients to me.

While spending a weekend with friends in Jacksonville on a hot summer day, the subject of Ice Cream came up. Our friends are real Ice Cream connoisseurs. Did a search on my smartphone for Ice Cream and turned up Dreamette. It was a little drive from downtown, but not too far. The neighborhood is a little iffy, but the ice... More

We stopped by here to grab an afternoon treat for the kids. We really liked their unique dipped cones (toasted coconut was the favorite). I like the old time feel of the walk-up service. They also have a few benches around the outside of the building in the shade. I also like that they had an outside sink to scrub... More

I love ice cream and this was delicious. I loved the atmosphere of a small ice cream parlor. I had the swirl vanilla chocolate ice cream covered in coconut dip. Next time I go I will get a milkshake. I would recommend it!

I had the chocolate shake. It had very little chocolate taste. Disappointing taste but at least it cooled me.

I thought it was overrated... It was just okay. I had ice cream with a chocolate coating. Husband got the sundae. It wasn't the best, but wasn't the worst. Decent pricing. There are better places out there, but it'll do in a pinch.
