Excellent little place with outstanding ice cream and lunch and drinks...what more could you need? Even if you don't need a huge ice cream, they serve a darling tiny hot fudge sundae that is just perfect for a post meal sweet!

I can't say enough good things about this place. The food is delicious, the ice cream desserts are heavenly, and the ice cream cocktails are yummy. The Art Deco interior is gorgeous. Don't skip a trip here!

I apologize for answering your question so late. I just noticed it. I believe that the restaurant is handicap accessible. I am not sure the rest room is handicap accessible. I hope this helps.
