Saw this ice cream shop/diner while walking old town. Swung in for some ice cream and coffee around 9pm ish. Great selection and the serving sizes were generous. Nice old diner decor and service was very good. Will definitely go back.

Great place for old fashioned ice cream deserts. The "Top Hat" is the best... vanilla ice cream in a cream puff topped with hot fudge.
