    Possibly the best ice cream in Cambridge. Very creamy with fresh flavors. Mexican chocolate is a favorite.

    Absolutely horrible service. Rushed us out really fast, wasn't busy or near closing. Didn't even get to tell them my size or toppings until after. Ice cream wasn't anything special

    Very fluffy, flavorful ice cream. I tried ginger, and I can't wait to try each of their unique flavors later. P.S. Many tips are saying it's cash only, but that doesn't seem to be the case anymore.

    Get an adventurous flavor, and then try to grab a seat on one of the benches out front. Eat your ice cream while enjoying the atmosphere of quaint Inman Square.

    Try the Coffee Oreo And Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream - Generously packed in a huge waffle cone. This ice cream is really really good - it's so thick you kinda need to chew it.
