Marble Slab Creamery
Marble Slab Creamery has some of the best ice cream in town! It is creamy and the quality of the ice cream is rich and savory. They can create any type of mix you like. You select your cone type, flavor or flavors of ice cream as well as toppings and they combine everything on a marble slab. The prices are slightly higher, but it is worth the money. Customer service is pretty good and you can also sample flavors before you try them. Additionally, they allow you to create your own mix and take home a pint or gallon size container.
Baskin Robins has been around for many years. At one point the Columbus area did not have a location in this area for a few years. When they were open about 15 yrs ago; the quality and taste of their ice cream was incredible! The prices were decent and they had a great variety of flavors to try. The customer service was just as good as the ice cream tastes. As of today it isn't my favorite source of ice cream because the quality of ice cream is not the same.
Bruster's is farely good. After trying Marble Slab Creamery, Bruster's ice cream did not taste the same. You can taste the difference in the quality of the ice cream, and the prices are higher. However, the customer service is good at this ice cream selection. They have a smaller variety of flavors than those compared to Marble Slab Creamery and Baskin Robins.
The best ice cream shop is Marble Slab Creamery. They are the most unique in providing a memorable outting for ice cream. They offer a variety flavors, and also sell smoothies, sundaes, and ice cream cakes. The shops are clean and the customer service is good. Children will love watching them mix up their ice cream!
