Old Timey Ice Cream Shop

The ice cream is delicious (pralines and cream), along with many other flavors. Sandwiches are very good. Old timey ice cream shop feel complete with stools to sit on.

Drove by and decided to stop and get Ice Cream. They serve Hershey in many different flavors. We got cones this time but the sundaes are very good also!

These people make really good soup and it is appreciated on cold wet days. The staff is also friendly and helpful.

I had a mint moose tracks shake. It was a little tough as a shake because the chocolate sauce and pieces of mint would clog up the straw but it was good. The young man that helped me was very nice and helpful. Prices were pretty good.

What a great place to find! They have over 41 flavors of ice cream, Italian ice, milkshakes, and subs and sandwiches. The food is fantastic and so is the service!

We went to the Ice Cram Parlor with our young nieces and had a blast! They had many choices to choose from and we all enjoyed our time there!

An old ice cream parlor atmosphere with absolutely wonderful HOT sandwiches (and soup sometimes). I go here for the sandwiches, but usually end up leaving with a big cone of hand dipped ice cream, too. The service is fast. No frills...just good food.

We love eating lunch here. They have great sandwiches and the ice cream is the best. We'll go back every time we're in town.

I really enjoyed my outing here. The staff were incredibly polite and helpful. They interacted with both of my children in extremely positive ways. My special needs teenager loved the respect and attention. The shop has an old fashioned fun family feel and there are two separate outdoor areas to enjoy. The ice cream is tasty too. Definitely worth checking... More
