We are nestled in the Iris Garden Gallery Complex one Block North of the Courthouse next to the Copperhead Gem Mine. We have no indoor seating available, but offer two cafe style tables on our porch as well as four tables with umbrella's in front of our business. There is no street parking but you may pay to park in the next block, or find parking along any other street in the village. Our menu varies from ice cream treats to other food items, that include pulled pork bbq, sandwiches, and taco items. During the fall we make our own Pumpkin Custard which is a crowd pleaser. For the past 5+ years we have been the number 1 winner for a local chocolate walk offering a variety of samples during this event. Stop in, say hi! get a sample of ice cream, or the taco meat, let us help you have a wonderful food experience here in the village! (tuesdays thru October we have off the menu lunch specials!)
