A visit to the past! Huge selection of house made, dipped ice cream with reasonable prices. Family owned for over 63 years. The maple walnut ice cream was outstanding! A steady stream of customers constantly enjoying this local treasure.

Homemade with a large menu, it draws a crowd but handles the line very well. It has outdoor seating only and is the typical drive up and park ice cream stand. The ice cream is anything but typical...it is outstanding!
