We stopped in on a hot June afternoon and weren't disappointed. Service is good and the locally made ice cream is excellent! Can sit outside, eat ice cream and watch the world go by. Great place to stop.

The ice cream served (which is Josh & John's brand, a Colorado Springs craft creamery) is delicious and several of their flavors are gluten free. Unfortunately, the portions are meticulously weighed and a single scoop means exactly that - one small scoop. Given that the prices are a little on the high end, this all makes for a treat of average value. The staff said that most of their chocolates are made without gluten containing ingredients, but because there was such a high level of cross contamination persons with gluten sensitivity should avoid the candy altogether.

Hello KY,

Hmm...yes your review is right on. We do weigh our scoops and for two reasons, for us and for you. For us so that we can control our portions and costs as yes our ice cream is a premium, hand churned, all natural ingredients ice cream and for you so that you can know you will get the same scoop size every time. Did you notice that for only about .50 more we'll give you another full scoop if one is not enough. And yes on the gluten free. The complexities of a fully gluten and gluten free kitchen are beyond us. Not only do you have to control tools you're using but air flow as well. So 98% of our customers are happy with this arrangement. I hope you'll give us another try and have a wonderful day. - David

We got chocolate and ice cream. The ice cream portion are super small for the price was sad about that the girl had a hard time scooping it out. We got mango cover in chocolate that was amazing, the coconut chocolate was OK to hard for our taste, chocolate cashews was good put the pecan and milk chocolate rock it was awesome nice surprise.

Awesome ice cream. Powerful flavor. Unique flavors.
Friendly service.
Recommended oatmeal cookies to combine with the oatmeal cookie ice cream for sandwiches. That would have taken it over the top!
