Over the Moon specializes in organic vegan ice cream, all made in-house. It comes courtesy of Gretchen Todd, who is also the founder of Juice Girl.

Over the Moon currently holds 4.5 stars out of 10 reviews on Yelp, indicating good reviews.

Yelper Catheryn S. wrote, "Over the Moon takes the cream out of ice cream with their vegan shop! I was pleasantly surprised to find an all-vegan ice cream place -- not like your typical ice cream place where you only get one or two vegan options and it's likely just sorbet -- not worthy of your cheat day. "

And Rose P., who reviewed Over the Moon on January 27, wrote, "Seventeen flavors of ice cream are offered and are displayed through the glass. You can sample as many flavors as you want. Treat your taste buds out!"

Over the Moon is open noon-10 p.m., Wednesday to Sunday, and closed Monday and Tuesday.

And Rex C. wrote, "Five-star review. My cousin suggested we try this place and when we walked in, they were closed, but the owner went out of his way and made ice cream for my son. That's how you win a client for life in my opinion."

Yelper Chris H., who reviewed Bubble Egg on April 21, wrote, "Customer service was great and everyone was incredibly friendly. They offered lots of samples and explained everything perfectly. It's not something I'll crave all the time, but it was a fun experience and is a great place for a special treat."
