Beautiful antique soda fountain inside of a charming book/antique store. Good ice cream, fresh pie. Sometime musicians are strumming in nearby lounge area. There's even a small cave or mine from the gold rush era you can see in the basement.

Great place to stop. The address listed in Trip Advisor is off by about 3 blocks; but it's worth finding this place just for a malt and cone

We almost didn't have a chance to visit this last trip because of rains and timing. But kids insisted on visit before driving home. LOVE the sarsaparilla on tap. Half our family got ice cream and glass, other half hot sarsaparilla float. Be sure to...More
