Sad. Historic ice cream parlor. In the old days, a neighborhood gathering place. Rarely, if ever open.

If you are driving on 6A it might be a place to stop at on the way, but I would not go out of my way. After the fire several years ago it is not the same. The beautiful old soda fountain is no longer.
