“Fancy in a old way”
Reviewed November 3, 2011

I have been here a few times mostly for ice cream with my wife. I have only had breakfast as far as meals go. The food was hot and tasted good. It was a good value and didn't seem like highschool food.

“Great Cheap Food, way cool swing band in the patio, too.”
Reviewed July 24, 2011

Ok, the food is mediocre. It's not bad, it won't cause indigestion, but it's cheap, and it's reasonably quick. The value is over the top. The fact you can sit outside and listen to a swing band whose members are, I think, 30 years older than me, but who plays all sorts of old-fashioned stuff, is just way cool.

The decor is quite amusing, it's basically "1900's kitsch" with all sorts of gas station memorabilia, and the like. It was once a gas station, but its second life is quite nice to visit.

Don't expect gourmet food, but there's nothign wrong with it, and they carry Wilcoxon's Ice Cream, which is about the best going.

“Fun place and great ice cream”
Reviewed June 5, 2011

Stopped by here while doing a quick walk through Wallace. The owner is very friendly, saw us walking outside and invited to try some huckleberry ice cream. The place could be a mini museum. The decorations are fun to check out while waiting for your ice cream. Good prices.
