    They have a flavor calendar. Their vanilla custard is amazing, sundaes are delicious and the staff are great. Don't expect sophisticated ice cream, this is a good old school style.

    OMG the best. Get the Recess or any of the great rotating flavors. I'd recommend checking their flavor calendar online too

    They have a great menu, with delightful offerings BUT if you're in the mood for something simple and delicious, ask for a concrete. Ryan always orders the Oreo, and I get a strawberry one!

    One of the few frozen custard places I have seen in Washington. Creamy texture and rotating specialty flavors that change daily. I also just like the vanilla.

    The daily special flavors are written on the blackboard on the side wall so you can see what's served for the entire month

    Sea Salt Cookie Fudge, I thought the combination is a little weird but it was so good!

    We devoured one so quickly, between the store and crossing the street, that we had to immediately go back and get another

    Get the affogato! Yum! (It's unfortunately called "Ryan's Drizzle" on the menu...)

    The Strawberry is very good, but you have to look out on their calendar for what days they are doing it that month.

    I like this place! They disguise custard as ice cream! And Andy's Mint as mint. And Soylent Greens as humans!

    Lockeroom all the way. But it's big enough for two. Or a team.

    Don't get the muddy buddy, it's too decadent. Go for something simpler, or just enjoy the custard by itself.

    Don't bring your kids. They are not very kid friendly. No kids scoops. Ask them to split into two but expect "the look".
