We love the homestead creamery ice cream from the store and decided to go get some after seeing a movie at the Grandin theater nearby. This place has about 25 different ice cream flavors, lots of choices on how you want to indulge your delicious sweet treat and very friendly service! Our new go to place for a sweet treat!... More

The menu consists of grilled cheese sandwiches and ice cream so if you're in the mood for those, it's perfect. I wanted a Coke and they don't serve soft drinks - I think it's a natural food type of thing. The staff was very friendly and prices very reasonable.

We had a group of 9 people at Pop's on a Saturday night. The ice cream was great; a little something for everyone. The old fashion soda was good too! The place is a bit small for a group of our size. The one large table was taken so we had to split up and use three of the remaining... More

The ice cream is delicious - they use Homestead! I love the community vibe and the owners are friendly. The menu is a great mix of old school soda fountain faves as well as awesome lunch options like sandwiches and salads. A great place to bring the family or at the end of a date!

My wife, a friend and I visited Pop's after a medical appointment 3 hours from home. The reviews were good and the day was hot. We all ordered ice cream and it was very rich and unusually creamy. The atmosphere was old-time-soda-fountain. Nice. Rest rooms were spotless.

Pop's is Awesome! Such a cute little ice cream bar. They serve local creamery ice cream. Root beer float was delicious. Grilled cheese sandwiches are so wonderful. This is a must visit place for locals and out-of-towners.

We came across this ice cream parlor accidentally and decided to give it a try. It is an interesting place, almost an old fashioned ice cream parlor. The servers were very friendly and the ice cream was very good. They also had bowls of fresh watermelon which would be very delightful on a hot day.

I've been here for book club, on a date, with family and with friends. It's just a fun, cool, welcoming place. Old fashioned sodas, sundaes, brownies, lots of cool grilled cheese sandwiches. A fun neighborhood place. Love it.
