Ice cream so good that it's almost spiritual

This place is fantastic. Bottom line. The ice cream, the sodas, the floats, all of it - AMAZING. You won't find another place like this for 500 miles. And the staff - they're friendly, knowledgeable, and almost religious about their product. This is one of those places that will eventually be on a... read more

Authentic soda fountain!!! Attention foodies lol... eat here! Locally owned by nice owner, who is almost always on site. He truly cares about his business and customers and does a lot for the local community and schools too. Fun ice cream; puzzles on the tables to play with, good for families and kids. And. Amazing egg creams, and floats, and... More

I was excited to take my son to an ice cream parlor that had a toy store too. Not too much of a toy store, they barely had any toys. The ice cream was good even though we ordered by number from the menu, I saw the employee look it up to see what was in it and then left... More

Friendly employees, many delicious ice cream choices. The game-toy-cool stuff part of this establishment was untidy and poorly stocked. No water fountain to wet my whistle after downing my dark chocolate ice cream. Nice selection of board games to try out.

Great little soda fountain tucked away in a strip mall. Ice cream sundaes were wonderful, and the soda jerks were very nice. Made for a nice stop on the way south

Want to experience an old time soda fountain / hangout place / non-electronic game store? Then this is the place for you. I quickly chose my ice cream flavor from their wide assortment, only to find out that they have even more choices of sundaes, including a "sushi" plate and the kitchen sink challenge, which comes in a real sink....

People around here are all hyped up on this place, and granted, it had pretty good ice cream, and some pretty decent flavors, and presents it in a neat way, I don't think that it is all that and a box of chocolate. I went expecting more of a vintage feel to the place, and found out that it looks... More

This place is fantastic! I'd rather go here once than DQ 5 times. It's an old fashion styled shop, complete with glass dishes and real silverware. There is always a new and interesting ice cream to try, usually made even better with their freshly made ganache.

Interesting, unusual ice cream flavors but also the 'standards' that kids will grab on to and love. Staff is amazing. Prices are unusually low. Great little place!

It is set up to look like an old fashioned ice Cream parlor and for the most part, it does ! The menu is huge and makes everything look fantastic! The prices are a bit high, but you can't find most of these things anyplace else! This is the only place I know you can still order an ice cream... More
