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.

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.

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.

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. :)
