Timely service and very courteous .everyone likes to be greeted with a smile don’t we ?
The quality and texture of the ice creams are of international standard. The chain believes in “Value for Money” offerings, so be assured of an affordable treat.
Boiled to down :
The best part of the swensens experience is to gather some old friends order one of their massive sundays meant for a group and all dig in over some reminiscing and conversation cant think of a better way to spend a hot summer afternoon or pretty much any time you want to catch up with some one.
Whether it is the big brands or one from the local mom and pop store, ice-cream is a fun way to pass time with friends and family.
