We only stopped in for a milkshake, but it did not disappoint. Reasonably priced and delicious. The decor and memorabilia add to the experience.

This place has a full counter with lots of ice-cream based deserts. It's a fair representation of a historical counter. The milkshake I ordered was ok. Nothing to write home about here, though.
