The staff working the ice cream counter are friendly and super enthusiastic about sampling. I'm genuinely impressed with the fact that they're using real spoons instead of plastic.

It is the opposite of all the frozen monstrosities that are popular today. The flavours are fun and inventive but the execution, by comparison seems so civilized. It probably doesn't look as exciting on Instagram, but it's really good stuff.

Pro-tip if you want to pick up a pint, call ahead and have them throw it in the deep freezer for 20 mins so it doesn't melt en route to your destination.
