The Best at what they do!

Love this place. Fun decor, awesome ice cream, and a great staff!! Also, and more importantly for me, and anyone with Celiac Disease, they have Gluten free cones! Not just the cones but they carefully store toppings separately, will open a new ice cream container for you, and train their staff... read more

Unique experience for the young at heart. The 1950's atmosphere with '50's memorabilia all about the place, allows for adults and children alike to be fascinated with the place. They have a large variety of ice cream and floats as well as "old" candy. Everyone needs to visit at least once on every vacation.

Wonderful home made ice cream in a reto 50s-60s ice cream parlor. Place has old cars as booths. There is memorabilia all over the place - old records, photos, etc. . Fun for both adults and children. Hours are strange as they open at 6PM. Closing for the season now.

Super cute ice cream shop! Quality ice cream and a very cool vibe. Our kids...and parents loved the retro decor. Sat in a Cadillac booth and my mother in law reminisced about growing up, telling stories to our daughters. Shared great memories over great sundaes! Fun for everyone!

This was a homemade ice cream store with booths made of 1950 cars. 1950's memobilia adorned every wall. Ladies room was 1950 beauty salon digs, men's was barber shop. Fun place just to check out all the thins from years back. But oh how delicious was that ice cream! A must see!

We went here in the middle of the day when it was not busy. It was the perfect time to look around at all the memorabilia. Yes, the price was a little hefty, but the ice cream was decent and we had such a blast walking through the different rooms and looking at everything they had. There are hundreds of... More

We went there with a order for nearly everyone in our hotel. I was amazed at the care the two ladies took in making sure each order was filled properly. They even put the persons name on the cup so there would be no confusion. They handled our large order like it was nothing. They have a lot of nostalgic... More

This place is fantastic, especially if you enjoy 1950's pictures, 'antiques' and celebrity autographs. In my opinion, they could charge admission just to tour the shop. In addition, the ice cream and floats were very good. I hope to go there again when we're in the area..
