Ate here three times in three days. The banana pudding ice cream brought back cherished memories of childhood.

Best ice cream ever.... Try the Mexican chocolate in a chocolate-dipped waffle cone! They even serve food in waffle cones now.

Part sculpture, part building, patrons enjoy ice cream served from a design based on a 1928-vintage style cream can. Little Man Ice Cream is pure nostalgia nestled in the 21st century.

And it appears to be 21st construction, rather than cherished landmark. Not that it matters...
