    If you're here with a group, get the earthquake. 8 scoops of ice cream with 8 toppings of your choice. You can try almost all their flavors in one order. Divide the cost and you'll be glad you did.

    We came here for ice cream, way over priced. Had the brownie sundae, it was average. They have a nice selection of the chocolate squares for sale and they are priced well.

    Brownies are mediocre. Stick to ice cream and cookies. Also beware: staff wears name tags with names that aren't theirs. I'm looking at you, Brandy.
