Service here is prompt and friendly. We enjoyed cherry and butterscotch polar bars. Prices are very reasonable. Love this place...my first time here! Need to make another visit soon!

This ice cream shop is just off the Central Lakes trail. Following the lead of another review, I enjoyed the ice cream sandwich--not disappointing! My husband enjoyed the turtle cyclone. We love to patronize small-town businesses. My only suggestion is that there are few outdoor...places to eat in the shade--some table umbrellas would be a good addition.More

Love going to this seasonal restaurant. It really gives a "hometown" feel to your meal. The food and specialty ice cream treats are excellent. My favorite burger is the Cowboy up....a spicy/juicy twist on a burger. Highly recommend this place. You can eat outside or...inside (limited seating).More

Right on main street Osakis. Can't miss it as you pass through town so stop in and give it a try on those warm sunny days.

This place is so cute! They have very little for inside sitting otherwise it is a walk up place and has a nostalgic feel to it. The ice cream tastes great as well.

I love that this place has some food, ice cream, and other cold delights! I had some of my husband's cone and it was delicious. The ice cream is perfect! They also have "special" flavors that you can get in twist cone....great! For the lactose...intolerant, they have chocolate dipped frozen bananas which are quite refreshing.More

Love, Love, Love the ice cream not a big fan of the burgers because they are pink. I love my burgers but I can't eat any meat that's pink.
