    They have vegan ice cream. Works great when you love ice cream but have to stay away from the regular milk products for some reason.

    They have 6-8 vegan flavors, but they often run out of these pretty early in the day. The non-dairy base is nuts — mainly cashew I believe.

    Ice cream is delicious (& expensive) but the service leaves a lot to be desired. Long lines and often only one person slowly scooping behind the counter. Hope you're not in a rush!

    The staff here is often of the millennial-hipster variety (the active phonograph really illuminates this point) but the coffee and ice cream are top notch.

    The fact that they use fresh hormone-free milk and cream from local farms is an added plus! Sea salt caramel & moose tracks, for the caramel and chocolate lovers.

    Used to go here everyday for coffee. Nice option, homemade ice cream you can taste the ingredients. It's that fresh, you can taste it. For a hefty fee.
