Stopped for a quick late lunch after visiting diamond crater!

Sandwiches were ok but ice cream was the bomb! Malt was great! Little trinkets but no great deals. A cute stop and enjoy the shops on the square!

We stopped for an afternoon treat. They had muffins, cakes, cinnamon rolls, hand dipped ice cream, all kinds of coffee, candy, toys, and other food items for sale. Everything was great! The store is so cute as well, much like an old time soda fountain.

Wonderful friendly people. The food was perfect and the ice cream...wow. It was like stepping back in time when life was slower and people took time to visit. Will for sure go back every time I have the chance.

Soda fountain in operation since the 1930's. Ice cream and sandwiches available, pastries in the morning. Cute toys ala vintage style. Lots of pickles, relishes, jams, sauces, salsas for sale. Nice selection of kitchen tools if you need any. Interesting building/architecture. Worth a quick visit when walking around the block-long downtown.

We stopped in here for a quick bite of lunch and some milkshakes after a morning of digging for diamonds at the crater. The place is a quaint little old fashioned soda shop in downtown Murfreesboro. We had some great chicken salad sandwiches followed by chocolate and strawberry shakes. There is also a great assortment of local made jams, jellies... More

I think the 'General Store' and 'Variety Store' are one in the same. I'm leaving the same review I left for the 'Variety Store'. We stopped in for ice cream cones after digging for diamonds. There were about four of five people working. Each person could only do one thing. The poor kid running the ice cream needed help, but... More

The shop is ok. Lots of sauces, jellies etc. I wanted to make a purchase and the owner kept talking to two ladies about everything under sun while I waited in line to pay. Instead of excusing herself from casual conversation so I could check out she let me stand there 15 min. I nearly put my stuff down and... More
