Great blast from the past.

Great place for ice cream. Like going back in time. The quaint black and white 50's design is refreshing. Stay and watch a movie in a completely remodeled theatre.

Great homemade ice cream. I had the apple pie and wish I could have it at home. They also have a great menu to grab a bite. John the owner was a great guy and shared ideas for touring Bryce which were spot on. Stop but this place. It is a Gem!

Unusually fast and friendly service (for Utah). If you're unlucky to be looking for a place to eat in Panguitch, this is your place. Dinner was good and you get a free ice cream with it, which was also very good.

We have a thing for historic movie theaters, but this one took the cake. It was like stepping back in time. Order the upstairs vip seats, and prepare to enjoy. We were the only tourist there. Everybody else was local, knew each other and greeted each other. Price was great too!

The front parlor of a movie theater. If we had the time would have been fun to see a movie there. Ice cream is made on premises. The reason I didn't give it a five was some of the flavors were empty. It was explained to us that the ice-cream is made monthly and runs out. I would suggest taking... More

This is a real cool and charming place, with kind people and simple but very good food. We loved the soup of the day and the tasty spaghetti with meatballs. Prices are very reasonable. Just make sure you have cash (or check). Enjoy !
