This is a really nice local place. Staff was very kind and very warm. They have a lot of options and it was super tasty. thanks so much for the warm welcome guys and I hope to be back the next time I'm on Salt Spring!
Good ice cream spot. Right in the center of thevillage. You can smell the waffle cones being made from everywhere in the vllage. Must stop summer time tradition.
I have grown up coming to this place, and their frozen yogurt has become a highlight of my summers. Counting down the days until I am there again this summer! It's delicious and the cutest little ice cream shop.
Fantastic service! Staff was super friendly, ice cream tasted wonderful. The employer works with his employees as a team unit, and as a result my treat arrived in perfect time, despite the over-crowded store. I've never seen a cuter shop, and would definitely recommend this place to all my friends. :D
