Has the best old fashion soda bar. Has many antiques and other old items. A must visit. The pastry isn't fresh made daily. Go look and have fun,

I highly recommend the sea salt caramel ice cream. My dad came by on that day and is trying to find that same flavor. I have not tried the sandwiches.

We stopped for an afternoon treat. They had muffins, cakes, cinnamon rolls, hand dipped ice cream, all kinds of coffee, candy, toys, and other food items for sale. Everything was great! The store is so cute as well, much like an old time soda fountain.

Wonderful friendly people. The food was perfect and the ice cream...wow. It was like stepping back in time when life was slower and people took time to visit. Will for sure go back every time I have the chance.

Sandwiches were ok but ice cream was the bomb! Malt was great! Little trinkets but no great deals. A cute stop and enjoy the shops on the square!

Soda fountain in operation since the 1930's. Ice cream and sandwiches available, pastries in the morning. Cute toys ala vintage style. Lots of pickles, relishes, jams, sauces, salsas for sale. Nice selection of kitchen tools if you need any. Interesting building/architecture. Worth a quick visit...More
