“Retro, cute and PINK!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Put on your retro dress and head to Sugar Bowl! The sandwich was just OK but the Strawberry Sunday was WOW! It is definitely an ice cream spot. Go even if it’s just for the look (the pink stools, the cute napkins, etc.) They also have games for kids in the back.

“comfort food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

A wonderful spot to take the kids or grandchildren, plenty to choose from on the menu, a fun arcade to divert their attention, and lots of delicious ice cream favorites. What's not to like?

“Great pink, classic 50s diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

My husband and I went to this place mainly because the decor was all pink and I love pink. It is reminiscent of a classic 50s ice cream parlor. The food was surprisingly good (if you enjoy classic diner food, which we do). The ice cream flavors and shakes were great. As an aside, their menu lists frozen yogurt, but they do not actually have any.

“It's like being in a Laverne and Shirley Movie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

The Sugar Bowl is a one of a kind place selling great ice cream. When you walk in it's like being at a Laverne and Shirley movie set.

“A wonderful step back in time.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Enjoyed the wonderful step back in time
To the old fashion ice cream parlor I
Enjoyed as a child. We had a Reuben
sandwich and a BLT which were
excellent. We returned after shopping in the area for delicious ice cream cones.
