“What are the gloves for?”

I went to have ice cream with my daughter and thankfully that was all. Watching the gal make sandwiches for other customers gave me nightmares thinking about what I didn't see. Sure she was wearing gloves but she was eating a cookie, brushing her hair back-WITH THE GLOVES!!! So, I am asking what is the point of wearing gloves? There were customers waiting and the servers were visiting with each other and didn't seem to be in any hurry to serve. I hope that I just caught them on a bad day because the place is really charming! I will try again.

The Hot Fudge Sundae with nuts on top was yummy. We had a good laugh with the staff. Original soda fountain establishment - looks great. Definitely give it a try.

This is an old fashion soda fountain with great service and good ice cream. It’s a toy store and lots more. If you have a craving for ice cream or a drink or simple lunch this is the place to go. The best part is this is the real thing, not a Disney recreation.

A real old fashioned soda fountain awaits you - I had the best hot fudge sundae and we all had a lime rickey - something I have not had since a kid. Fun place
