We had the corn Chowder and western sandwich last weekend. It is so nice to see this place open for the season and the Service is very good and the food piping hot. We are going for the Easter ham dinner this weekend and really looking forward to it.

It's not cheap for the ice cream there and if you pay by debit...an extra 50 cents. Come on, it's part of doing business. Service is generally not friendly and sign on door says you pay a buck to use the washroom. It's supposed to be a hospitality business but they are missing that part of it. Ice cream always... More

So glad we found this place this summer for lunch as it is on the outskirts of town and friendly people and good food well presented .Homemade soup very good as well as a sandwich! didn't try any desserts but they looked delicious!

I find it hard to understand some of the negative comments posted in other reviews. I have patronized this establishment for many years for their ice cream - even before the current owners took over - and have never experienced some of the points referenced by others. Admittedly, I have not dined there, but I have always found the staff... More

This is a really cool place to stop and get some good home cooked food and great service. If you want just some ice-cream this is th place as well. nice views of the garden and the river behind the prices are excellent and they even have fresh baked goods. do stop by and try this place out.

I went to this establishment wih my son today. He ordered a medium ice cream cone, and I ordered a small. Our total was $10.35. They actually charged us for the ice cream and the cone ($1.13) seperately!! Was I supposed to hold the ice cream in my hand? The service seemed disorganized, and the server seemed like she did...

I stopped in at Molly's for breakfast and, since there are much better breakfast options in town, this will probably be my last visit. The service was very amateurish. I realize they are students, but they should have thorough training and at least have some personality. Introverted types are not the best choice for hospitality. I ordered the full breakfast...

Molly's is known for ice cream but the cafe is very good as well. Breakfast is our favourite there. The cafe is very clean. Service is good. Lots of students employed there. There is also a patio.

We went there for ice cream with our family. The lady working was rude as hell and seemed put out greatly that she had to actually do Something. The funniest thin is they charge you a dollar to use the bathroom........serious. Don't go to this place.
