I think the 'General Store' and 'Variety Store' are one in the same. I'm leaving the same review I left for the 'Variety Store'. We stopped in for ice cream cones after digging for diamonds. There were about four of five people working. Each person could only do one thing. The poor kid running the ice cream needed help, but... More

The shop is ok. Lots of sauces, jellies etc. I wanted to make a purchase and the owner kept talking to two ladies about everything under sun while I waited in line to pay. Instead of excusing herself from casual conversation so I could check out she let me stand there 15 min. I nearly put my stuff down and... More

Ice cream is good as is the service from the young gentleman behind the counter. Old fashioned soda counter and lunch specials.

My wife and I visited this old-fashioned general store following a trip to the Crater of Diamonds State Park. The best part of the visit was conversing with the owners/staff, especially a young man who appeared to be in his early 20's and who was very personable and knowledgeable. We toured the gift portion of the store and bought a... More

The owners were present and so fun to talk to. Their store is lovely with awesome ice creams, waffle cones, old fashioned shakes, and made to order sodas flavored with a myriad of possible flavors. The owner bakes her own cinnamon bun/rolls which fill the air with an incredible aroma. We loved this place.

We stopped here after a long day of digging for diamonds. We wanted a light dinner of Sandwiches & shakes. The employees were friendly, but ordering was a little confusing since they didn't have a menu (aside from a chalkboard listing sandwich prices). So we just ordered basic stuff. They had bottled soda in a vintage Coke machine, which I... More

Good old fashion sodas. The young lady behind the counter was very nice. She knew how to make a great root beer float.
