Great place for morning coffee and solving all the world's troubles with friends and visitors. The malts, shakes, sodas, ice cream cones, and sundies are to die for.

If in the White Lake Area, be sure to stop at Lipkas. Lunch has a mix of standards and creative fare. All food is home made. Pleasant atmosphere that takes you back in time.

I adore this cute little throwback establishment. The ice cream treats are yummy and the people are always nice. It gets a little too hot in the summer inside the building.
