My daughter attended a wonderful birthday party here. I enjoyed walking around and was impressed by the massive selection of candy and gift items.

Great place to meet for lunch, very casual no rush to leave like at a restaurant . Soups, Quiche and sandwiches. Very fresh ingredients. Have gone back three times . If you have room after lunch make your own sundae, love their cherry caramel!

The folks there were friendly and the ice cream was great. The tables and floor were sticky, and most tables were not cleared. It's the only reason this review is a 3 star.

Stopped by chance on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Appealing outdoor dining and great smelling inside tables. Against my true wishes I tried the sugar free chocolate and SF vanilla ice cream. Splurged with a touch of hot fudge some coconut and walnuts - everything exceed...More
