Small ice cream parlor

Small, but ice cream is fantastic. Don't look for fancy accommodations here, you won't find it. But on a hot day there is nothing like their ice cream!

In a town where not much during this time of year is open...we chose Cafe Swiss Miss and glad we did! Understand it was busy and it did take a while from start to finish but in the end was REALLY WELL WORTH IT! The food was great and the service was off beat if you will but loved it... More

Only restaurant open so we decided to give it a try; what a mistake. Sat down at a table and waited patiently for the waitress. When she finally appeared, she said in a very rude tone, "I will be with you in a minute." So instead of putting up with her attitude, we walked out. Before we went in, we... More

We barely walked in the door and we got screamed at by the waitress from across the restaurant while the seated patrons stared at us. Without asking why we were there (dine in it take out, etc.) she yelled at us about how she was working alone, the tables were full, the menu was limited and the restaurant was closing.... More

Stopped in yesterday for ice cream and coffee. Was forced out of the seating area by a rude blonde waitress. Told us full service only and we had to move. There was one other person sitting in there and a few people at the inside counter. As we are being forced out the door my 12 year old daughter looked... More

Thank you for your review. I will assume some responsibility here, as it puts the responsibility on whom ever is working to tell everyone as they walk in the door that the dining room is full service, and if you'd like something to go, you order at the window. 99% of the time it is received well and understood, and...

BEWARE! We were told to leave by the rude blonde lady, but after buying four ice cream cups. No one else was in the restaurant, we were the only ones there. So we were shocked and appalled by the rude service. Had we been treated so rude before we purchased ice cream we would have walked out. Rude customer service.

We tried to buy water and were told to go outside because there was a line. In reality there was only one person in line and no one outside. So we got the water next door and then sat on the benches. Then we were yelled at for sitting on the benches when no one was waiting for a seat.... More

I was mortified. After the slow time to order and 20 minutes more to get our food, I was almost finished with my burger when the blond waitress brought out the French fries. At my suggestion that I no longer wanted the fries, she screamed at me and proceeded in a tirade to demean me. The whole restaurant could hear... More

Yes, something is wrong, and being that you insisted on two posts with two different ID's, I will waste my time once again responding to another 'all the facts missing', passive aggressive review. ....When I do respond to a review, I never defend or contradict what people claim that SHE has said to them, I simply provide the conveniently missing...

I eat here all the time. The Pizza grilled cheese is amazing, cheese steak, flat bread pizza, and breakfast are all great. The owner and the manager are good people, very helpful and friendly. BEST ICE CREAM IN HARPERS FERRY; VOTED NO. 1 I do believe.

I was screamed at by the blond waitress. Totally berated. I complained that the French frys were underdone. Her response was balistic. In addition her whole lack of attention to the customer situation was poor at best. Nothing special about the food either.
