It's like walking back in time to the 60's ice cream parlour from the decor to the friendly staff makes it a great experience and the ice cream is delicous, and the penny candy is also a friendly throw back in time.

This place has great ice cream and a fantastic selection of old school penny candy. The interior is done up very nicely and is how I would imagine an ice cream or candy store looked like years ago.

Who doesn't love penny candy in an Old Fashioned Ice Cream Shop? Adults will reminisce about the good old days with the assortment of candy available and kids will love picking out all the different things available. Ice cream is top notch
