So many choices and all of them, delicious. I enjoyed the peanut butter sundae for a reasonable $5.50, which included 2 scoops of peanut butter ice cream, nuts, whipped cream and chocolate sauce and it was perfect.

Ice cream is ok, servings are small and overpriced. Offerings are very different, don't expect to find many of your favorite flavors. Very hipster type place.

Stopped in after lunch and shopping with my daughter for a well deserved sweet treat break. It was very busy, line out the door and only 1 person working the counter (we felt so bad for him but he was handling the crowd very well under pressure!! He remained cool and calm kept a great pace all with a smile) I am plain Jane girl when it comes to ice cream I like my plain chocolate generally with rainbow sprinkles :) I branched out today and had a de leche with Brazilian cocoa and truffle something it was delightful. If you are adventurous they offer many different flavors such as Ginger, Nutella, Honey Apple Crisp, root beer, Spicy Chia to name a few. It's a great place to pop in when your trolling around the Old Port working up a sweat, pop in cool down with a Maine Made Ice Cream or Float!!! Don't blame me if you go back for more :)

Absolutely loved the 3 flavours I tried tonight & will definitely be going back again while I am in town.
Tried Buttermint, Kulfi and Basil which were each so accurate in taste & delicious.
Basil was spot on but with a sweet taste, Kulfi was packed with pistachios & Buttermint was minty yet smooth.
Was really impressed with so many new original flavours.
I haven't had such great original tasting ice cream in ages.

Very unique flavors and able to mix and match if you couldn't decide on just one. Scoops are small for the price but overall a good option if you are looking for a place that has unusual flavors. Small location can get busy so be prepared for a line - moves fast though.
