Soft stuff closed when they tore down the old Forest Motel to make way for a more modern shopping area but is it coming back? Rumor has it soft stuff will return as part if the new development. I doubt it will be the same. ... Cause I doubt they will replace the grass lawn - ther is just something... More

This ice cream is very good nice and soft. Teenagers run the place as employees to get to collage, but they are very nice. It's not just ice cream ;-) can any one say banana split icecream sandwich or snow cone

It's good old fashioned soft ice cream and it's yummy, which is why there is always a line. However, in my opinion, the line moves quickly enough to... More
