Stopped in for an ice cream and sat outside watching them make hand pulled taffy. Candy counter was great for the kids to go crazy over. Everything was good.

Great place for breakfast and lunch. The windows all around give an open feel and service is tops. Don't miss the salt water taffy, the best anywhere.

During our stay we dined three times. Love the soda counter feel and dining of days gone past. Taffy was great too as was the meal offerings.

This is good, tasty home-made food. Service is quick and efficient. Prices are reasonable. Tables could be a little more space out.
