Great ice cream and a great place to bring the family. Inexpensive and friendly. They offer a limited amount of flavors though they make up for it with a lot of topping choices.

Kline's Dairy Bar is a tradition. You can choose from vanilla, chocolate, or the flavor of the day. Lots of locals keep the Kline's schedule of flavors at home and in the car.
