If nostalgia is your thing this is a must go place during your visit. Soda shop vibe with so much to look at! And oh don't get so carried away with the vibe that you forget the ice cream - nothing better on a hot summer night than ice cream from a great place at the beach!

Best place on the island for ice cream? Yep! Ok so it's expensive...but oh so worth it. The kids have so much fun looking at all the memorabilia! My husband and I are always finding a new "Do you remember when?" story about one of the old candies they sell or a pic of Sinatra on the wall. Sitting in... More

Finding an open ice cream parlor in Wildwood on a Thursday night in October was a treat in itself, but this place is really a museum that sells a little ice cream. The stock was low since they will be closing soon, but they still had about ten flavors on hand and fresh waffle cones. The owner was kind enough... More

A 50's style ice cream parlor which houses 50's memorabilia. A must see when you are in the area. The custard is also good.

Traveling back to another time, cool scoops memorabilia just blows me away. The ice cream treats are delightful, but the decor including a 57' Chevy checkout along with a 58' Ford themed booth make you want to rev your engine and slip it into reverse to enjoy those fabulous 50's and 60's. I almost felt like Marty McFly going back... More

this place is the greatest to walk around and look at all the memorabilia in every inch of the place, every room. A lot of nostalgic memories.

If you were a teenager in the 50's or 60's you will appreciate this establishment. It is if you were going back in time. A museum of sorts. Make sure you take the time to go into the various rooms, look at the various wall posters of famous celebrities' and memorabilia and EVEN GO INTO THE BATHROOMS! The seating area... More

You get several picks as to how you want your ice cream, bowls, different cones (waffle, sugar, regular) and they must have over 20 flavors including gluten free. You get to pick your toppings and they have old time candies. The walls are filled with the old shows, Pinky Lee for one, the bathroom doors are soda machine entrances inside... More
