I was so relieved about how they handled my child’s gluten allergy. They opened an entire new container of ice cream, washed hands and used a new clean scooper to serve her. There were not as many ice cream options that could be opened new because it was later in the evening, but my daughter and I were still very pleased!

Despite the long, long lines, the employees checked the ingredients, looked at a chart, throughly washed hands, used a new scoop, and got ice cream from a brand new tub. Very comfortable eating there!

Got ice cream here twice while on vacation. Both times the staff kindly switched gloves, opened a brand new tub of ice cream and used a new scooper. Had mint chocolate chip and cherry vanilla. The ice cream is so creamy and delicious! I am incredibly sensitive celiac and had zero affects.

This is an ice cream shop that offers gluten free flavors. The staff was happy to explain their manufacturing process. They also shared what practices were in place to lessen the risk of cross contamination when ice cream is served.

They were busy when we got there. We told them our son has a “wheat allergy” and she said “No problem, we will get a fresh container, change gloves and clean the milkshake machine.” We didn’t have to ask, she told us the protocol (and also washed her hands). We felt very safe and will take our son with celiac again.
