“As sandwich shoppes & ice cream parlors go, a standout!”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

Somewhat of a throwback to the past with its quaint decor and hardwood floors it delivers just what it purports to do. The sandwiches are varied, grilled or plain, on a variety of breads of your choice. I had a chicken salad on a croissant as did one of my companions, my wife ham and cheese. All had generous portions and were accompanied by coke products. Our glasses were promptly refilled and our waitress checked on us three times, pleasant and courteous. Although we were there at noon the restaurant (not our first visit) seems crowded with locals and tourists. The staff is plentiful and dashes about the restaurant catering to both the sandwich and ice cream trade. A display of antique ice cream scoops is obvious on entering and the menu board had at least six kinds of soups on it. The waitress will give you the check and you pay at a common register at the counter, they do not accept American Express. A pleasant luncheon experience. Ample off-street parking.

“Try the Holstein”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

Stopped a few times recently for ice cream. Have had soups before and they were good. Try the Holstein sundae. Simple vanilla ice cream, hot fudge and marshmallow. Very yummy. I have found the service to be a little slow but friendly. This place is a real taste of Lancaster County.

“A little SWEET place to eat”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

If you for some reason find yourself looking for an inexpensive unique place to eat in and around Ephrata, Pa - this is a great place to go. It's nothing fancy mostly simple sandwiches with chips and soups but it all taste good and is at a good price. You can also stop in if you are just in the mood for something sweet as well. The udder choice has yummy ice cream and pies. I personally like the hot fudge brownie delight and I find the ice cream is quite smooth.

“This place is dirty. Poor service.”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

They need some adults working there. Lots of kids work there that have attitudes. The whole place is dirty and needs a good cleaning. Food is not very good. Nice place if they would hire pleasant people without attitudes. The cooks have long hair and are dirty looking.
