Best Ice cream

What is the best ice cream shop in IC? I'm looking for creamy rich ice cream, perhaps with some creative flavor options.

Iowa City

Hmmm...I didn't notice any ice-cream shops at all in central Iowa city, just the occasional cafe/whatever which sold ice-cream as well as other food. There's a 'yogurtaria' selling frozen yoghurt on South Clinton St, if that's acceptable. I'm not into frozen yoghurt so didn't try it out, though it seemed popular enough.

Heyn's is popular with my relatives but it's quite some way outside the centre at 811 S 1st Ave.

If you want anything else to eat in central Iowa City I can tell you that the Bread Garden Market at 225 S Linn Street is excellent:

and the very, very best breakfasts are served at the Bluebird Diner at 330 East Market street:

Yep, Heyn's does pretty well but as Leics said, is some distance from the the center of Iowa City. If you are up for substituting frozen yogurt for ice cream, Yotopia (mentioned above: 132 S Clinton St) is seeing very good ratings.
