Really good homemade ice cream. The best seasonal pumpkin ice cream. It is a small space so it is sometimes best to take it to go. They also offer prepackaged ice cream to take home.

This place is perfect for the "real" old fashioned ice cream fans. Lots of benches outside for people watching, they have all sorts of milkshakes and floats, and they make a mean Arnold Palmer drink

This place is a combination coffeeshop, quick breakfast diner, and, of course, ice cream parlor. The decor mimicks that of the old-fashioned soda fountains from the 1950's, although it tries to hark back to an earlier era by broadcasting DVDs of old 1930's and '40's classic MGM/Warner Brothers movies.

The selection of ice cream is enormous, from the fattening double chocolate waistbusters to even organic, natural sherbets and shakes. Coffee and various flavored teas are available and even hot sandwiches.

My only regret about this place is that it is a bit cramped. Seating is at a premium inside the shop, although in the summer months you can take your ice cream cone out to the many benches and patio seating situated next to the shop.

Nice place, in a lot of ways. Little bit too self-conscious about the retro aspect, but they do excellent work. A good selection of ice creams, with some flavors not available elsewhere. Plenty of hot chocolate and cider during winter, and plenty of cones, sundaes, and ice cream sandwiches for when it gets warm.

PROS: Great Ice cream, presented in a nice atmosphere.
CONS: Constant oldies playing inside.
