Old school - it's awesome, as the locals already know. Do carve out time to pop in to the pharmacy where you can find the needful potions and even a good cigar, however, more importantly for ice cream. We plopped down on the old swivel...More

Best tuna melt I've had in years. My nieces had milk shakes w lunch that had to have been the richest, best (most fattening) thing since cream was invented. It's such a great throw-back kinda place.

Ice cream is delicious, the sandwiches are great! Feels like a blast from the past with their old fashioned soda fountain and old time feel. The employees are different every summer but mostly polite and efficient. Love, love, love this place. I recommend it highly...More
