The Malt Shoppe has a great location on the river. It was very nice to eat our ice cream and sit on the patio. We all ordered something different and loved everything!

The place to go for ice cream and a really good breakfast too. You can pretty much walk to anything in town and you will want to go here even in the Winter.
