    Don't sleep on the sorbet. I had the Orange Irish, and was delightfully surprised at how much flavor was packed into each spoonful.

    I'll never get why it's only a seasonal flavor, but it's March and Mocha Chip is back HOORAY!

    Most fantastic flavor: Rum Raisin. Uncannily alluring rum-soaked raisins. Read more

    Hot? Should probably get some ice cream. Take a seat outside, there's a 40% chance that a hoedown is happening.

    Get a chipwich - tasty cookies and cheaper than a small ice cream. If they're not busy, they'll make them special with whatever flavor ice cream and cookies you want.

    Amazing ice cream and coffee, but, surprisingly, their tart frozen yogurt is also very good! I prefer it to iYO and Orange Leaf.
