We decided to stop for ice cream after dinner. There were 10 of us and we were pleased to see that you could order outside through a service window. We ordered single scoops and were given double...a summer promotion. Good ice cream, as always.

I don't think the food here is really all that great there a better diners around. However I will admit that a lot of their ice cream Sundays are delicious.
