Toby’s Homemade Ice Cream & Coffee

“It was ridiculously crowded, the line moved quickly. The ice cream was delicious and perfect for a cold treat on Mother's Day.


“However, one employee kept shouting and waiving his arms to have everyone file in all the way to the back so they could keep the front entrance door closed. At one point he waived and pointed at my mom and said ‘hey move back so everyone can get in’. Unfortunately the table set plus the line at the counter prevented my handicapped mother from moving any further back than she already was. It was a bit rude. That was the only complaint I have. Everyone else was perfectly delightful. Though my mom was a little embarrased, the lovely employee with the pastel pink braid made a point of being overly kind and getting my mom to smile.” — Lanie Beyer



From the website: “Handcrafted ice cream is our passion. We start our process by combining fresh local grass-fed cream and local ingredients from nearby farms. Using our freezing agent, liquid nitrogen, we freeze the ice cream on the spot in front of our guests, creating the freshest handcrafted cup of ice cream you can get.


“From ice cream to cappuccinos; we proudly brew Swing's Coffee. Join us for a cup of coffee and hand crafted hot chocolate. Visit our stores in Old Town and Clarendon open 7 days a week, all year round!”



From the website: “In an imported, pre-packaged, flash frozen world, true freshness stands out.

It takes time, effort and passion. It’s carefully crafted. Tom Carvel started out creating real ice cream right in his shoppe. His Soft Serve ice cream was a way to deliver fresher, creamier treats, novelties and cakes to our guests. Since then we have continued to make all our products locally from the finest ingredients. It’s a difference you can taste. Which is why we are so loved by our fans and continue to make new ones.”
