Do you like ice cream sandwiches? Are you a human being? Then you won't be disappointed. 

Melt does ice cream sandwiches right - the cookies are on point and crispy, the ice cream is delicious. They constantly have around 8 flavors on the menu, 5 or so that are considered the core flavors, and then a few seasonal rotations. My favorite is hands down the classic (walnut chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream), followed by the lovelet (red velvet meltcakes and cream cheese ice cream - YUM).

Their winter and fall flavors are also amazing, with bourbon ice cream and pumpkin cookies added to the mix. This place won't blow you away, but if you want a solid ice cream sandwich, this is it.
