What We Tried: Goat Cheese with Red Cherries, Brown Butter Almond Brittle, The Buckeye State, Sweet Cream Biscuits & Peach Jam, Pineapple Upside Down Cake – Buttermilk Frozen Yogurt
Our Take: Our first 5 out of 5! Just go. Seriously. Do not stop. Do not collect $200. Just go. First of all, great decor – modern, clean, and fun. And then there’s the smell. I wish I could blog a smell. But I can’t. So just go. Then there’s the ice cream. So inventive! Unique! Mouth-watering! The Goat Cheese with Red Cherries was surprisingly delicious, but I don’t know that I’d want a whole bowl. Good for those who like Original (Tart) froyo. The other flavors were just out of this world. My favorite by far was the Pineapple Upside Down Cake. The fresh cherries were so sweet and mixed with soft and spongy cake – just orgasmic. Is that appropriate to say on here? I don’t care. We will definitely be back. Frequently. For things like a Salty Caramel with Smoked Almonds Ice Cream Sandwich. You should go too.
