Step back in time in this wonderful store where you can find anything from a bicycle to a chicken salad sandwich. The couple that run the store are as interesting as the store itself.

I highly recommend the sea salt caramel ice cream. My dad came by on that day and is trying to find that same flavor. I have not tried the sandwiches.

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.
