Great place if you feel like getting something a little different. Their macaron ice cream sandwiches are amazing and the variety of flavors is a plus! My only complaint is that the ice cream bars I bought were already melting fast by the time I left the cashier and the taste, sadly, wasn't anything to write about. I still have yet to try their baked goods but they seem to be popular so I'm definitely gonna throw in a brownie or two for my next purchase.

I've heard that the line gets pretty long at North Penguin, but the line wasn't bad when we got here, and we got our desserts relatively quickly. We thought they were out of the ice cream sandwiches, but it turns out they had more hidden in the back, so don't be afraid to ask! Tried the coffee toffee macaron ice cream sandwich while my friend ordered the grasshopper. Though the coffee toffee was good, it wasn't too spectacular considering the price. The idea of putting macarons and ice cream together is clever, but it makes the macarons hard, so they lose their chewy, delicious quality. Not sure if i'll ever come back here, but i was definitely excited to try a different type of ice cream treat. Note, if you can't find parking, try going one block north and parking on the parallel street. There are no restrictions there (:

Hello, I loved this place for many years, but unfortunately, this location is now officially closed. I do not know if it was the rent, I don't know if it was the lack of customer. I know it was not lack of customers even kids would come for the ice cream in Crepes and they were heavenly. But there is another location. You might want to look that location up if you want any more savory or sweet crepes. It's a shame cuz they were so good.

They are quick and the crepe oppositions are vary diverse and very delicious. It's a small shop so you won't be able to sit in there and enjoy you crepe.
