“Love it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2012

I thought it was an upscale diner, but it is so much more. The best salads I've ever had for under $10 and possibly the best ice cream in St. Louis. Great service, fun atmosphere for all ages.

“Yummy”

Great atmosphere. Love the decor. The ice cream was great. Stopped by for dessert after going to Pappy's smokehouse and we were not disappointed. We are going back for dinner. The menu looks good.

“Wonderful food, so-so service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2012

I love the food and desserts at this place. Everything I've tried has been tasty. However, most times I've visited, the service left something to be desired. Since it's located near Saint Louis University, I figure most of the servers are college students. Anyway, I still recommend this place. The ice cream drinks and desserts are phenomenal, as is the corn chowder.

“Go for the Dill Pickle Soup!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2011

It's fantastic! The desserts are exceptional as well, with all things made in house or locally. The women's rest room was voted "best restroom in america" last year, too, so make sure you stop in to check it out. :)
