“great choice for a special "ice cream out"...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2010

The new owner of this has done an amazing job of renovating and revitalizing this place! Even though the prices no reflect the high $ renovations, it's still a great place to have ice cream out! They still have old fashion Bordon golden vanilla....oh so good!

“A Fun Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2008

This is a fun place to visit when in Lafayette the place has been open since 1940 and one of the employees named Mrs. Ella has been with the shop since 1961 and is still going strong. The banna frappe or old time sodas are excellent and the banna split with the walnuts is a meal in itself. The prices are very reasonable with prices starting at 1.25 for a cone. The music they play in the shop is great you never know what the employees will put on next as they let their ipods shuffel and all the employees seem to be having a good time. Seating is limited and it gets busy on a Sunday afternoon but the wait is not long.
