This cafe has been in continuous operations since early 1900s Originally a pharmacy with soda fountain and converted over the years to a cafe that supports the ravenous appetites of the Gunnery School students who live there. Home cooking. Best breakfast sandwiches and home made ice cream served at the original 100 year old soda fountain.

Good place to stop by. But I had to do 4 stars becsuse there are no more milkshakes there. The milkshakes were very good. I like the old fashioned atmosphere
