You can always find a line of people waiting at the window for creemes. Locals and tourists go for the creemes and the view. They also have a nice balcony with lake views. Did not eat there, just had creemes.

Our local "go to" place for snacks, drinks, take out and occasional eat in. Just the right mix of food, groceries, wine and liquor. Helpful staff. Convenient location.

Delicious Maple soft serve and exceptional restrooms! I detected just the faintest of cinnamon scent. Very clean, though trash needed ending.
