We stopped in here primarily to go to the soda fountain, gotta just love these old town stores with the ice cream! Chocolate malt was to die for!! Then we had a fun wander around the store, they had candies from our childhood and some cute touristy items as well. Worth a visit if only for the ice cream!

This store is like something out of the 50's. They had a little soda fountain area and we got some awesome hot chocolate. The town is really cute too. We went around xmas and it was all decorated and people were driving around the streets in rental golf carts.

This place is a must stop if you're passing through Jefferson. It's a classic, old-fashioned general store with a soda shop, ice cream and nickle coffee. Pick up some old-time candy, salsa, jams and pickled items. Or, just stop in and enjoy the history of this great building.

We always enjoy stopping in while traveling through our visiting the Jefferson area. A place to grab a bite and hard to find unique items.

I could not stop shopping! The amount of items they carry are impressive, the floats were delicious. Super excited to see that many locally made items can be purchased online.
