Stopped by here because we wanted more than just Chocolate and Vanilla ice cream. It was not a mistake. The place is small and even though only one person was working it moved quick. My husband got the chai flavor while I got caramel. Both...More

Delicious flavors that change often. Inspired combinations, like peach & whiskey or sweet corn & bacon. Also a full range of ice-cream drinks involving coffee and other mixers.

We tried the ice cream at Luella's and had to get another serving. The banana pudding, strawberry and Belgian chocolate were excellent. The price and service made this a worthwhile visit. Be sure to try a scoop if you get a chance.

Kevin has created a wide variety of unusual and exciting ice creams and sorbets. The flavors are constantly changing though there are traditional favorites such as Madagascar Vanilla bean, mint with chocolate flake, Belgian chocolate, salted caramel.
