Staff was wonderful and the servings were generous! Ice cream was a special treat. They also have nachos and hot dogs for a light snack. Old fashioned ice cream shop feel with kids movie on the tv.

Last of the Borden ice cream parlors. Great treats and limited lunch menu. Super place for kiddos to visit and enjoy what grandparents enjoyed years earlier. Easy parking and located just off downtown.
