The flavors they had tasted just like what they were advertised as (the rose tasted like roses smell). My only gripe is that they were all really different flavors and the price was pretty steep. If you go, get toasted marshmallow on top of chocolate with waffle cone bits... really really good and it tastes like a s'more :D

What a adorable little place! I love that everything is farmed locally and organic. I'm not a super health nut but its nice to know that we're supporting the local community. Since everything is made in house and not in huge batches you can really tell the care and thought they put in to everything they make. Its such high quality and, dare I say it, pretty! They also change a lot of the flavors as the seasons much fun! Highly recommended

Just went in for the first time today, got an amazing salted truffle crunch or something like that. This place is the real deal, they make all their ice cream in house, and get milk and dairy from a local farm. I also ended up knowing on of the guys working back there! If you're looking for some good ice cream for after dinner, this is the place to go. Walkable from anywhere downtown. Also, every 15 scoops you buy earns you a free one! Cashed in on my friend's today.

Fine ice cream -- but nothing that will linger in my memory forever. I think the marketing works better than the actual small batch ice cream here. I've been to many other places where the ice cream is far more spectacular. This is less-creamy, more grainy overall.
