“If your palate is like it was in your teens...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

...then this is a place for you. We had a breakfast and a lunch here. On both occasions the food was mediocre and the only reason we went back a second time was because we did not want to be too harsh after one experience. I rarely send food back or have it taken off my bill but the tomato basil soup order on the second visit was bad because the cook lost control of the pepper.

There is a bit of history to the building so a couple of things on the three levels may interest those who like to look at the wood, decor, and a few pictures. High school and college kids reportedly enjoy the sandwiches, the ice cream and the candy. If you are an adult then you probably will frequent it for its downtown location and inexpensive food items.

“Must stop here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Donkers makes fantastic chocolate candies. They also have a soda fountain and some interesting and unique gift items. But mainly go for the chocolates. Dark or milk chocolate covered caramels with sea salt! Chocolate covered orange peel!
All yum.

“Nice store, great ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Stopped by for a very short visit. Lots of little niche gifts. Place smelled very nice. Chocolates looked yummy but did not buy. Son bought and loved a waffle cone of Lumps of Love ice cream. I may have taken a bite or two.

“If you like candy....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

If you like chocolates and other assorted candies served up old-school style, this is your place. There are even booths to plant yourselves in the rear of the store.
