I work up in Atchison nearly every Monday, and Snowball is my go-to lunch place, because they understand great customer service and great food! The ice cream at the end of every lunch meal, hits the spot for me! Thanks to this great crew for all their work!

I haven't had anything but the ice cream at this location, but it was really good. Hard to really get a feel for the atmosphere, slightly antique, slightly updated, college students seem to enjoy being there. Service was friendly.

We stopped in here for some ice cream in the afternoon. it was quiet, and the help was extremely nice and courteous. I ordered a sunday (it was big), my wife got a Limeaid with a scoop of sherbet in it, and my girls got 2 scoops. it was awesome. Would drive through Atchison just to stop here again!

I have visited this place in the past, but I definitely noticed how things are changing. The food used to be very good quality, the coffees and hot drinks were second to none, and the ice cream and treats were really good. Now the food still has the same titles, but the quality of ingredients has gone downhill. The hot... More

Been here many times over the years, and I've noticed some very good changes. The espresso shots are pulled better, giving their drinks much better flavor. The addition of the Den next door was very nice since Snowball can get crowded at times. In the end, though, my family and I go to Snowball for its ice cream (and fantastic... More

Stopped in just afternoon for some coffee, but the owner said she'd make us some breakfast if we wanted. Coffee was delish! Lots of different items on the menu - reasonably priced. Nice atmosphere. Will definitely be back to try more!!!

We stopped in this morning for coffee and it was fantastic. After exploring the town we stopped back by for lunch. Our food had real, fresh ingredients in it, much appreciated and a great price!

They have the best salads and sandwiches. Their sweet treats are awesome too. This is a must stop for my family, every time we visit.

Took about 27 minutes to get five scoops of ice cream for our family. It was busy, but not overcrowded, and there were two people working behind the counter. They did their best, I suppose, but there was little sense of how to deliver food to people in a timely way. At least the ice cream was cold.
