See my comments. 2 locations and one does it well.

There are two locations but only the location in the harbor is truly accommodating. They change gloves and use new everything. We went there twice on our vacation. We tried the other location located in a strip mall and the kids working there didn’t know what GF meant and they didn’t know the ingredients in their own ice cream. We walked out. Go by the water because they know GF. The ice cream is fabulous.

They mark orders with an allergy, bring up a fresh container of ice cream, and wash scoops and hands. They also offer gf cones. Plus this is some of the best ice cream in the area!

Very accommodating. Opened a new container, washed scoops, etc. And it was the first time I have had ice cream in a cone in 7 years.

Great experience. They have gluten free cones and take the ice cream out of an unopened container. My 11 year old is a highly sensitive Celiac.

Stopped in expecting to get soft serve in a dish however they had a choice of GF sugar or regular cones! I didn't risk trying the hard fun flavor ice cream because I was pretty certain they were cross contaminated. But I was happy with a twist on a GF cone.
