Great place to bring the kids

A new favorite! Exceptional service, amazing ice cream, great ambiance. The regular food is good, nothing to write home about, but let's face it-- it's all about the ice cream! I brought my almost-3-year-old daughter here for lunch after a long hot morning at the lake. We had so much fun! We... read more

Great ice cream - just like an old time soda shop. It is a lovely restoration. Ambiance of the good old days, including the friendliness of the owners and staff. A must place to go if in Pittsboro.

Great place to go for a small town atmosphere. The food tastes great and you get plenty of it. I ordered two scoops of ice cream and I think I got about 10. Recommend to anyone.

Take a 3 scoop banana split and cover with a mountain of whipped cream. Our foursome ordered one to share, and no one left hungry. We enjoyed the classic counters and tables surrounded by marvelous wood cabinets and mirrors. Just a fun place for a cool treat: shakes, sundaes, sodas, and splits. Next time we'll try the lunch menu. Located... More

Nice place to go with friends a quick bite and to admire the decor, it is set-up to look like you stepped back in time when you use to go to your pharmacy to get your meds and have a quick bite to eat and enjoy some ice cream. Their ice creams are huge , large enough to share. Make... More

This place is like walking through the door of a time machine. I had a Banana Split that could have fed 4! Lunch is always a winner and I just really like this place. Reminds of an Ice Cream shoppe we had at home when I grew up. A definite winner in my book.

We waited 20 mins before anyone helped us. We were lied to about what was in the mixed ice cream. The prices are expensive for disgusting ice cream that is NOT made in house or local. Instead it's low quality factory produced. We will never come back to this place again.

Has all the charm from yesteryear. A busy, fun place. If you get a sandwich have it on the Sunflower Bread it's very, very good. If you order a sundae be prepared to share. They are huge and have your camera ready if you order the Banana Split because no one will believe you when you try to describe it.... More

what an outstanding establishment! the food exceeded expectations, and the staff was very friendly. the decor was very interesting and historic, and reminded me of the soda shoppes of days gone by. it was probably one of my favorite dining experiences so far....would visit again.
