Recently a visiting friend wanted to treat us to an ice cream so we decided to stop. The place was packed but the service was very efficient. They had a great selection and even the small serving was huge. Can't wait to go back.

The food here is perfect for lunch. The Tuna Salad was fresh. The onion rings were good. The raspberry chocolate ice cream is my favorite.

It was nice, and a few years ago I had a pretty good "Philly" cheesesteak, but this trip was purely for ice cream. It was a Saturday evening, and cool weather had moved in, so there were not a lot of people, but things moved...More
