Lots and lots of souvenir stuff, ranging from kitschy to nice and unusual. Lots of old-fashioned toys and candy. Old fashioned soda fountain (that I didn't get a chance to try). Do not miss the pralines! Made daily in-store and beyond yummy.

Finally got to try ice cream sodas just like in those black and white movies! Great selection of sodas and really really cool antique bar and cash registers. They also make their own waffle cones which is cool.
