Miss South Dakota contestants love Gus' Best!
And Shave Ice. And Smoothies. And Shakes. All our ice cream is served in either a fresh made waffle cone or waffle bowl. The smell is scrumptious! And now, Tom has developed a recipe for a pecan waffle cones which is to die for. If you needed a reason to visit Hot Springs, South Dakota, this is it.
We love our Breyers Ice Cream–it’s so rich and smooth and tasty. We’ve got Rocky Road, Mint Chocolate Chip, Oreos Cookies and Cream, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, Butter Pecan, Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry. Our flavors rotate, though, so we might have something different but equally delicious on the day you visit.
Sam and Tom (and Brian) are beginning to perfect the art of Shave Ice. All our shave ice is served in flower cups which catch all those messy spills and avalanches of syrup soaked ice shavings. Our toppings include Snow Cap, Coco Cap, and a special Cream recipe which makes all of those “and cream” combinations yummy. We also can give you a spritz of sour spray for a mouth puckering treat. But mostly, we want you all to try a scoop of ice cream in the bottom of the shave ice–it’s so Hawaiian and so delicious. It takes us back to our vacation on the North Shore of Oahu at Matsumotos.
We’re really surprised at how many people love smoothies. What began as an afterthought has developed into a popular treat with our regulars. We offer Strawberry Bomb, Strawberry Banana, Mango Mania, Carribean Colada, and Intense Peach. Topped with whipped cream, of course.
Stop by and see Gus and have a frozen treat. We’re open Monday through Saturday, noon until 8 pm (although we’ll start being open until 9 pm once the summer begins in earnest). You can’t miss us. We have the sign with the big ice cream cone being eaten by a manatee, the yellow umbrellas in the sidewalk tables, and Gus the Manatee on the sidewalk ready to have his picture taken with you. Call us at 605-745-6506 for more information.
And, check out the newbie deal on Foursquare–a free small shave ice!
