A great deli, the Lava Rock Grille, the gift store, the snacks, the sauces and the wedding & prom dress store. You just need to check it out for yourselves.

Nice variety of hot sauces and candy that I haven't seen since I was a kid. Their cheeses are reasonably priced also.

Saw many advertisements for this place so decided to check it out. It did have some fun things to look at but not enough to make it a "destination" visit.
