This little store is everything. We ordered the root beer float which is made with Barqs and Blue Bell, and a nice frosty mug. They have about every type of old fashioned candy you can imagine. Lots of fun souvenirs and knick knacks. Oh and coffee is good and 5 cents a cup. Yep..Five Cents!

So many candies and novelties from the past. Great place to pick up a souvenir of our visit. There is a soda fountain where you can get old fashion hamburgers and malts.

very crowded and overly kitchy it has everything you never knew you wanted. Pretty sure I would never go back, but it was worth the once-over.

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.
