      Line moves quickly. Flavors are all good. And, a small is 2 scoops, and you can have two different flavors! Definitely worth a visit!

      We were so happy to find this place, even if it require a bit of a walk on a very hot day. There wasn't much else to do in Oxford and this turned out to be a real pick-me-up!

  •   Afterthe lunch in nearby restaurant we walked to this place and got some ice cream. Not too expensive and quite big portions. Not to miss for sure!!:)

      Two scoops of ice cream cost $3.50. They have about 15-20 flavors but when they run out of a favor it is gone. Worth every penny and more. The creamiest ice cream you will have have. The scopas are generous and the line often long.

  •   A little off the beaten path, but well worth the trip. Creamy, smooth, with a water view to make it taste even better. It just might have been the best ice cream we ever had!!!

      We know better but twice in several days we had ice cream for lunch and I was already yearning for more on the drive back to Ohio. I had the Vanilla Malt Walnut and it was the absolute best I've ever had. They offer quite...More

      We stopped by after dinner - seems that everyone in town was there too. The ice cream was about average but the place has a nice view of the river.

      Best ice-cream ever. Next door to the "Capsize" Waterfront Restaurant. Oxford is a delightful small town on the Tred Avon River.
