Great ice cream. Cappuccino crunch and chocolate truffle made a fabulous hot fudge sundae. Hubby had a hot fudge sundae with Rocky road. My sample was yummy too. Big scoops and an old fashioned counter an booths made in-house each eating doable.

This place had sandwiches, subs and salads as well as ice cream. It was opened in 1982, but is decorated more like a parlor in the 50s. With the black and white checkered flooring and red stools at the counter and red booth seats. I...More
