Not worth the wait

We received coupons in the mail to buy an ice cream cone and get the second one free, $3 off an ice cream cake, and buy a quart of ice cream at regular price and get the second one for half price.

This is a new ice cream shop that opened, so good promotional tool to draw in customers. We like ice cream and went in to give it a try. 4 people in line in front of us and only one clerk serving customers, so we waited nearly 10 minutes to be served. I did see another women peeking out from the back room a couple of times. She finally came out to assist just as we were paying and getting ready to leave. By this time several customers were behind us, everyone taking advantage of the BOGO coupon on a nice day. Marble Slab should have planned their scheduling a little better after sending out BOGO coupons and potentially expecting more customers than normal. There was a woman and young daughter in front of us. The woman kept saying over and over to her kid, "isn't this the best ice cream you've ever had". The girl had nearly finished her cone by the time mom got hers. If this is the best ice cream they've ever had, that's pretty sad.

Its kind of hard to figure this place out. They have a menu and they have prices but its difficult to figure out exactly how much an ice cream cone is. Basically you choose one of their concoctions which is ice cream mixed with other stuff like walnuts, strawberries, chocolate chips, marshmallows. Must be over 50 ingredients to choose from that can be mixed in with the ice cream. The clerk scoops up ice cream, puts it on a scale to weigh it, and then returns to the marble slab to mix in the fixings, and puts it in a waffle cone. By now the ice cream is getting kind of soft and melting. I chose a Snickerdoodle - vanilla ice cream with Snickers and caramel. My husband chose strawberries and cream. When all was said and done at the cash register the total was $6.77. And that's with a BOGO! Wowsers! $6.77 for 2 ice creams, I can see it, but to come in without a coupon and spend that much each on one ice cream cone - no way. The ice cream really isn't that great anyway.

About an hour later husband had a stomach ache.

The ice cream cakes are nearly $30 each. The quart of ice cream is $8.95. To buy 2 with the coupon would be nearly $14, comparable to buying other high end ice cream.

Bad idea to come here if you have allergies. The ingredients are mixed on a marble slab that is scraped down inbetween cones, but to my eye it would be plausible that some leftover ingredients from a previous ice cream order may still linger on the marble slab.

My parents came in with their coupon and bought an ice cream cake. It was an apple spice cake and it was good.

If you have a coupon for a BOGO and want to give it a try, go for it. Otherwise skip this creamery. The wait and the price is not worth it. There are better ice cream places around. Most with faster service and better ice cream.

Awesome Ice Cream!

This is by far the best ice cream place ever! I like to come here and get a big, sweet delicious ice cream. Perfect after a nice meal at Five Guys next door.

Food: a large coffee ice cream scoop on a chocolate and oreo covered waffle cone with snickers, M and M's and Twix mixed in. Yummmm!

Value: Absolutely terrible at 10 bucks!!!! But it is huge and the taste makes it worth it every penny! Not something to buy often though.

Servive: Not great. The workers seem confused everytime you ask them a question but they are nice enough.

Ambience: The place is small with a few places to sit. Very bright inside and the place is too white without much colour.

Recommended. Dairy Queen has nothing on these guys and I love Blizzards even.
