Okay like this place is wayyyy too expensive for what it was. I think it was like $8 for my ice cream. It’s a cool concept but honestly just felt like I ate a cup of sugar after eating it.

I finally visited here last weekend and got the non-dairy vanilla with brownie batter dip and almonds on top! The serving is pretty big, I definitely could’ve shared it with someone. But it was so good—I can’t wait to go back and try more of their dipping flavors in a cone!

Unique concept for an ice cream parlor! Loved the decor! Lots of options and different creations you can create with all the different fillings, coatings, and toppings! You could come here on many trips and never get bored... check it out!

It's your average Ice cream shop. It was super super cute and I loved the idea I just don't think it was executed well. I wish they had better cones and maybe better quality ingredients. My cone tasted a bit stale and the chocolate, caramel, and brownies almost has a chemical aftertaste.

This is a fun place to go and try a time or two or visit with out of town guests. The concept is cool, but the actual desserts are pretty underwhelming. On my first visit, I got a soft serve cone with a chocolate dip and toppings. The ice cream was fine, but the dip left a strange aftertaste and the dried strawberries tasted very aspartame-y. Tonight I got a cheesecake Popsicle with chocolate dip and M&Ms and was VERY disappointed. The "popsicle" was NOT actual ice cream -- it was like the staff literally froze a piece of cheesecake and put it on a stick. The texture was odd and rather unpleasant, it didn't melt like a Popsicle at all, and it was virtually flavorless. The non-dairy chocolate dip was OK, and the M&Ms were by far the best part. The staff was also very off-putting....the young woman who helped me stared at me quite intensely while I was deciding on my order and looked annoyed the entire time we were inside. I don't think workers should put on a fake song and dance for the sake of the customer, but...one could at least not make you feel like you're inconveniencing them for patronizing the business. It's also pretty confusing as to why the staff doesn't write down your order when they take it, because anyone in our group who asked for more than three additions was repeatedly asked what they had requested. Seems like a pretty simple problem to solve...Ultimately, I'd go back to try one of the giant cookies, but otherwise I'll stick to local restaurants where the treats are tastier, the staff is friendlier, and the experience is better overall.

Delicious as always! The. Vegan Peanut Butter Ice Cream was delicious with Reeses Pieces.

Very good. Only 1 flavor ice cream; for dairy and non dairy. Be careful if you get a filling for the middle. It can be too much.

Non dairy ice cream, dips, and topping flavors! I can't get enough! Excellent customer service. Perfect place if you are lactose intolerant and want ice cream.

The BEST icecream I’ve ever had! Come one, come all!!! I’m definitely going back! This visit was my first time here and they were so kind, patient and didn’t rush me. The vibes inside are a MUST! Oh and the bag of dried icecream so good! First time for that too!

We go to Simon Says Dip This every time we go to DPAC. It is within walking distance. There are so many options of cores and topping.

Drove 1 hour and 30 mins yesterday just to go here! Worth EVERY MILE. On the way back TODAY, after Dashi!! (maybe before, if the line is long) The staff was super friendly and didn't rush us to order (our first time, we didn't know what we wanted) The store was super clean and they had SWINGS inside!!
