This place is cute and clean. I have only even had dessert, but I can't complain. The pie and ice cream are to die for. We have had several flavors and stopped many times and they never disappoint.

We stopped for lunch and were surprised when we walked into the front ice cream parlor. But we were quickly shown to the back dining room. I had the chicken salad sandwich and my wife had the salad of the day. Both were very tasty...More

Let me clarify something. We as locals supported the business when the previous owners had owned it. At the very minimum twice a week. Please do not minimize me because I am a local. I am sorry your business is not like it was with the previous owners.
