“Cute place, great ice cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Loved the old time ice cream shoppe atmosphere. DIdn't get a chance to have sandwiches there but were told by the locals their bread and sandwiches are amazing. We did have the ice cream though - YUM!

“Fresh bread makes the sandwich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in on way across the country. I had a roast beef sandwich on thick cut homemade vegetable bread. My friend had a chef salad that came with a great slice of wheat. Service was quick and friendly -- and Sparta is very cute.

“healthy(ish) food option”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We enjoyed eating at Ginny's Cupboard. The food and service were very good. The coffee was excellent and the decor was fun. The deck was small and smokey.

“Brings back memories of the 50s and early 60s”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

When we walked home from junior high school (yes - it was 2 miles and yes, we did walk or ride our bikes), we would often stop at a neighbor drug store that had a soda counter where we would get a cherry coke or real malt. Stepping into Ginny's Cupboard was like stepping back in time. They have all kinds of memorabilia throught the cafe. We enjoyed the walk back in time while we waited for our food. The food was delicious and the wait staff was very friendly. Like another reviewer said, this is worth the short drive off the Interstate.
