The ice cream is always amazing and the flavors change often. You're always greeted with a smile and a "hello". It's always clean and appealing and the staff are great! It's fun to watch them making the ice cream, too!

We were able to sample many flavors. I chose the Pistachio. My daughter had the vanilla bean and my son had the watermelon cucumber lemon sorbet. Very creamy. My daughter said “the best I’ve ever had!”. It’s not just ice cream. It’s CREAMY ice cream. I was pleasantly surprised. They also have ice cream for your dog.

This place has the best ice cream and some really unique flavors that are always changing. I love the lavender one they have. Well worth checking out.

The line out the door on a late September afternoon provided a clue that this was NOT the average super-chain ice cream slab store!

Cute shop, lots to look at while the line moved us forward to the ice cream goal post. Very clean and bright shop.

The best was of course the ice cream, which could be served in a choice of cake, sugar or freshly made waffle cones (or brightly colored paper cups). The waffle cones came plain or edged with chocolate and sprinkles or nuts.

We had a seasonal pumpkin and vanilla bean combo and a chocolate ice cream. All three flavors were creamy, frozen firm, and flavor fully rich.

Plenty of seating around Main Street Square, in front of the Silver Lining or closed to the water.
