GF options plainly marked, with lots of flavors that are rare to find GF (cookies and cream, gooey butter cake, etc). Also lots of vegan options. I just had to mention an allergy and the staff changed gloves and got me clean scoops from the back without me even asking! Great safety precautions and delicious ice cream. The seasonal pumpkin cake roll was my favorite!

All the flavors are labeled. And so many are gluten free. I mentioned an allergy and they scooped from the back. Between my daughter & I we tried Gooey Butter Cake, Salted Peanut Butter, Darkest Chocolate &. Lemon Blueberry. They were all delicious!

located on the corner under some lofts this was a cutie little local find!! I checked the site first as I’d say a good majority of the ice cream is GF however only about 8-9 options are DF and the options that are both leaves you rather limited. All that to be said.. when I went in the only DF options out for a scoop were lemon something and a caramel cake option of sorts. I asked if there were any options both DF/GF and the nice gal walked me to the pints that were for sale and pulled out the banana pudding, chocolate truffle and there was another flavor but I didn’t choose it so I forgot lol. Anyway, the pints were $12 which was more dollars and ice cream than I really wanted but I was committed so I can now say that the chocolate truffle was delicious. It’s very fluffy and creamy and has a strong chocolate flavor that I’d say pretty well imitates a truffle. It is made with coconut cream so if you’re allergic obviously stay away.. or if you’re like me and not the biggest fan of coconut be warned that the “whisper of coconut” the packaging claims is less whisper more indoor voice level flavor. But all in all the texture mimicked ice cream well, if they had this flavor on the line for a scoop I’d definitely go back.

We LOVE this place so much! The ice cream is delicious. You just tell the workers that you need to eat gluten free and that you need an allergy scoop from the back and they will go to the back and use a fresh scoop to get it from a fresh tub. In the display case, everything is clearly marked gf or not and they have dairy free options also. In the display case, their not gluten free waffle cone pieces can fall in the ice cream when they are scooping so it’s best to always get it from the back. Over half the flavors are gf and they even have cake and cookies in them which usually doesn’t come in gf ice cream. We have went here so many times without having a reaction. Amazing flavors. My favorites are gooey butter cake and the birthday which are both gluten free.
