While walking through downtown Smithfield we stopped at this location. Setup like an old soda fountain with booths, red and white strip awnings over counter with stools and pictures of area on paneled walls. Four of us decided on ice cream even though they have...More

We really enjoyed our stop here. The ice cream "barista" made my husband a delicious custom milkshake...my cone was also delish!

Stopped here on a Friday night for ice cream cones after dinner elsewhere. Loved looking at all the historic pictures on the walls. The servers were delightful and patient as we had so many choices of ice cream to chose from! Reasonable prices.

This place is a true small town ice cream parlor with good food on the side! Its very quaint and has that 60's vibe to it. Food is good, but ice cream is awesome!
