“What a Treat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2008

Although they had lunch and dinner items on the menu, the main attraction is the ice cream concoctions. This place has been in Scottsdale for decades. It's a real treat to go to an ice cream parlor that has not only sundaes on the menu but ice cream sodas, too. Such ice cream parlors seem to get rarer and rarer. I had a vanilla ice cream soda and it was superb. What was unique about it was that you are given a small amount of soda water on the side to add to it. My husband had the chocolate mint ice cream soda--something you don't see elsewhere--and he really enjoyed it. Another in our party had a sundae and the other person got a bowl of vanilla ice cream.

The only thing we didn't like was the way you had to pay your check. The waitress gives you the check and tells you to take it to the cashier booth. We went to the booth and no one was there. Two employees were at the counter but didn't come over. I finally had to tell one of them we were ready to pay. I think that the place needs to be more vigilant if the booth isn't manned constantly. Otherwise, everything else was great--the ice cream and the service both! We would certainly go back again next time we're in town!
