The businesses that have kept their presence as it was I really enjoy. Get off of I 29 and treat yourself and the kids to a soda, shake, sunday etc. Oh be sure to leave a tip, not a habit by most with this type...More

After years of saying "We really should visit Edgar's", we recently 'acted'. We, now, are sorry we didn't heed our own advice earlier. The ice cream is 'really, really good' -- but it's staffed by friendly people in a quaint setting (and, unfortunately, it sounds...More

Edgar's is located in downtown Elk Point. If you are traveling on I-29 on the outskirts of town, it is definitely worth a slight detour off the interstate to stop by. Part of the building contains gifty items and another part houses a drug store...More

There is this little ice cream shop in the middle of this dead town from what I remember. It was really good and I remember the soda float was one of the best I have had. I was there in 1999.

On a freezing cold day -6 with -22 wind chill factor, why not? Authentic glass dishes for delicious hot fudge sundaes in a beautiful room decked with Christmas decorations beside the pharmacy. The soda fountain has been there since 1906 and still looks great -...More

These places started disappearing in the 50's. How and why this is still here in the otherwise quiet little town of Elk Point is beyond me. It features real soda fountain delights from the good old days, prepared by trained soda jerks. If you have...More
