    Greatly delicious Family-Owned house-made ice cream, shakes & floats. They supply many local businesses & coffee shops such as Buster's in South Pasadena. 👍

    $6 milkshake is worth it, definitely. I got a Dutch chocolate milkshake and it was like drinking heaven, as if dozens of lustrous maidens were massaging my taste buds with whispered adorations.

    If you're buying a pre-packed half gallon and the flavor you want is gone from the fridge in the front, don't fret, just ask for it! They always have stock in the back (in my experience anyway) .. :)

    We tried the taro and English toffee I've cream and they were pretty good. It's not your usual flavors so that makes it different.

    Great Ice cream and sweets house. They have authentic hand made home style ice cream. Its a great way to touch in on old friends and see how the old style is still best.

    Be sure to bring cash to this real old-school ice cream parlor. You can also find their ice creams on the Waffles de Liege truck and at Dripp.

    Old fashioned ice cream 'parlor' with lots of yummy flavors. Some old fashioned, some new. Be sure to bring cash as they don't take plastic.

    The ice cream is amazing... Everything is delish, I love the salted caramel and English toffee. The customer service isn't that amazing.

    It's Cash Only here but Chase is across the street. The flavors are rich, creamy, & delicious. If you want water don't ask for a cup, they'll charge you for a bottle. There is a fountain in the front.

    Cash only, but totally worth it. The parking lot is small, but people go in and out so quick that you'll end up finding a spot before you know it.

    Get the chocolate raspberry mousse; it's the best flavor i've ever had. Make sure to get it in a double scoop with anything else.

    The brownie sundae with one scoop of toffee ice cream is big enough to share. Topped with hot fudge, whipped cream, peanuts, and a cherry, it hits the spot every time.

    Order a Lychee ice cream + Cranberry sorbet shake (delish!), but not from the guy wearing glasses. A tip? Don't chastise customers, we tend to talk about our experiences. Great 'cream, lousy service.

    I don't understand the positive reviews. Product is very average (far too sweet), service is not particularly friendly, parking is very limited, there's no restroom, and credit cards aren't accepted.
