Delicious ice cream sandwich! Just make sure they scoop from the back and use toppings from the back. The GF/vegan chocolate chip cookies were INSANE!

The GF cookies are so delicious and they were very cautious about cross contamination placing the cookies in bags for warm them up

Great place for a GF treat! The GF cookies are delicious and a few of the ice cream flavors are GF. Staff is trained to check the allergen menus.

There’s definitely a reason for all these positive reviews. Staff were incredibly knowledgeable and eager to help. They opened a fresh container of ice cream to prevent any cross contamination - at their own suggestion. Good food, excellent service, didn’t get sick! Safest I’ve felt eating outside my house in a long time.

Gluten-free ice cream cookie sandwich! Not a dedicated gluten-free facility (obviously) but the staff is very knowledgeable and uses different gloves to handle gluten-free customers.

Delicious!! They changed gloves, used a clean ice cream scoop, opened a brand new container of ice cream, and pressed the cookie in paper to avoid cross-contamination. The coffee ice cream is especially good.

I enjoyed a scoop of vanilla and chocolate chip cookie! They don’t have a special press for cookie sandwiches so the cross contamination risk was more than I was willing to take. For a cookie or ice cream this is a fun stop but not for a special cookie sandwich for the sensitive celiac.

I'm not celiac, but definitely react to gluten. they have gluten free chocolate chip cookies to make ice cream sandwiches with. super yummy and I didn't get sick! No aching joints today either!I would say cross contamination would probably be an issue because they're other cookies are made from scratch daily.

First this is the best ice-cream I ever had, and I have had a lot of ice-cream from all over the world. It was deliverd to my door yesterday on Mothers Day from my son who lives in Auston Texas. The young girl who did the delivery (sorry I did not get her name), was so happy and sweet made me feel so good with her wonderful Mothers Day present Mint Chocolate Ice-cream.

I called my son and he also said that when he placed order, he also felt really great so wonderful service, best product ever and delivery with a great smile. What can you ask for more, nothing.

The ice-cream lover.

I really liked this place! They did a great job with no cross contamination by using a separate area and new gloves. It was a lot better than I expected and the workers were very kind and understanding. I also got the vegan ice cream and it was really good. They offer gluten free and vegan brownies and chocolate chip cookies and chocolate chip ice cream.

I have been wanting to try this place for a while. The gluten free cookies appeared to be on their own rack behind the counter. The presentation of the cookie sandwich was awesome, but the taste left much to be desired. The cookies tasted like they had been sitting out all day, which it looks like they had. I think if they would heat them up that might help a lot. GF ice cream choices are clearly marked which is nice. Honestly, I ended up throwing my cookie sandwich away. Appreciate the effort, but would rather leave room for a better dessert.
