The best ice cream place in Fairbanks. They make all of their own and it is definitely a must visit if you are in town and especially if it is a hot day. My favorite flavor is the rum raisin.

This ice cream spot does not have many flavors. It was ok but not fantastic. Staff were rude. A bit overpriced

Lots of variety in the flavours and clearly they also use some local ingredients. Had a waffle cone with two scoops. Great taste. Unfortunately they close for the season on August 31st so we just made it.

Delicious treat! Lots of flavors. No place to sit inside but tables around it. It is close to the college. Staff seemed like they enjoyed working there and provided fast service.

Great homemade premium ice cream. Moroccan Rose flavor is a must-try. Great Honey cinnamon as well. Good Alaskan Blueberry. (Waffle cone not our favorite--just save money and get the sugar cone or in a cup)

Love their ice cream! Rainy day, so we enjoyed our ice cream cones in the car, but plenty of space to sit outside on a sunny day

We were there for the summer solstice and were on our way to the annual mid-night sun baseball game. We "needed" some ice cream and went to Trip Advisor on our mobile device to find the best place. This place DID NOT disappoint. Wow, the...More

I remember growing up thinking this place was the best, but it is just bit better than store bought stuff.
