Such a cool place. Loved the setup. Has the old time appearance of a family restaurant and ice cream parlor. Great burger and fries. Ice cream was very good. A piece of cake is huge and tasted wonderful. Seemed like half a cake.

I love the atmosphere. Service can be uneven. It is a good choice for a sandwich and coffee. We think that you will like it.
