Located at the Focus on the Family facility - this is a great place to eat while letting the kids play at Focus on the Family. Their hot chocolate is very good. We have in the past, taken our picnic lunch and used the tables...More

Very yummy. My kids, of course loved the ice cream and the atmosphere. It was very much an old fashioned style ice cream parlor.

We came here specifically to have the Wodfamchocsods (World famous chocolate sodas.) Reasonably priced and delicious, my children and I enjoyed their chocolatey, cold yumminess. The atmosphere was cute, kid friendly and whimsical. The girl at the counter was pleasant and friendly.

A restaurant is just part of the downstairs. The rest is full of free activities for the kids - 3 story slide, games, stage with puppets and costumes. Great indoor place for kids (even adults!).

I wouldn't come here to eat alone but I was surprised at how affordable it was and they try to cater to families. I only wish they offered more natural/healthy/organic options. The free play area is very fun for young children.

This is a must if you or your children listen to Adventures in Odyssey. Order the specialties that are mentioned in the show.
