Brought my son here for something to do so we painted a ceramic piece and then we enjoyed a nice big hand dipped ice cream! Great place to bring the kids too!

The sandwiches were fantastic. Homemade and fresh cut veggies and meats!! We came in for lunch and didn't realize what a gem this place was. You must visit here if your in town.

If you want real ice cream then this is the place. It has tons of sitting for groups. A pottery painting area in back for parties. The staff are really friendly. We go enough that they remember our orders.

Have been there a few times and enjoy it each time. The wait staff is helpful and offer samples. I tried the pumpkin cheesecake - the best!! Lots of flavor with chunk of cake.

We stopped in on a Thursday morning for a quick breakfast. We each ordered muffins and coffee. My wife decided she wanted something less sweet. She ordered an egg and bagel sandwich. They only had Swiss and American cheese so she ordered it without. The waitress came out a little later and told my wife that she had some cheddar... More

The menu has a big variety with lattes, hot dogs, pizzas, sandwiches, and ice cream. I tried the Italian sandwich as well as one of the flat bread pizzas, and both were surprisingly good. There was only one person working behind the counter who was also working the kitchen, but she was pretty fast on her feet and we got... More

If for nothing else, go for the ice cream but their food is also delicious as well. Very nice atmosphere in downtown Charles Town.

I have rediscovered Skippers! It is a great place to get a sandwich and a home made milkshake in any flavor you choose. I especially liked the West Virginia Hotdog and French fries.
