Cute, Quaint and a little kooky!

We stopped in for Root-Beer Floats and they were great. The kids thought it was really cool and enjoyed looking the whole store over on what to spend their vacation money. After walking most of downtown it was nice to sit for a few minutes and enjoy a treat with the wife and kids before we... read more

My husband and I visited this place twice during our weeklong vacation to get ice cream and went there for their gift shop another two times! All times we went we were treated like family. Great service and a small town feel. Oh wait it is a small town!

Good place to get those last minute items, but the ice cream was a little pricey. We only bought souvenirs here, cute earrings and a necklace. They offer tshirts and shells as well. It was ok.

We so enjoyed sitting at an old-fashioned counter and enjoying our ice cream just like we did when we were kids! They also sold reasonably-priced gifts to take back home. A fun place.

Stopped for ice cream and malts. What a treat. It was a trip down memory lane to be in an old fashioned soda fountain again. The staff were over the top friendly. Don't miss a visit when in town.

The Butter Pecan shake was delicious. Seashells galore.. Good deals.. I will be back😄 Papa Joes restaurant is another great spot for supper. Ladies at local grocery store recommended it.

Stopped in for a treat. Hand dipped Blue Bell ice cream. Hubhy had his coffee ice cream made into a shake and it was awesome! Kinda fun to look at the trinkets while enjoying a cup of ice cream.

The Blue Bell ice cream served here is very fresh; they must sell a lot of it. Good selection of flavors, and a comfortable atmosphere in which to eat it -- very Old Time. My one hesitation in recommending this place is that some of the young women who work here are rather short with customers -- they seem to... More

Old-fashioned soda fountain combined with gift store. Most reasonable prices in town. Ice cream and sweets were good and resonably prices. Dished up by polite young ladies.
