Best lunches in the area. From chili dogs and egg salad to great soup and designer (and very creative) sandwiches. Everything is great. The entire menu is on a small old fashioned chalk board. Great place for drug store history as well as many pictures...More

Great place for morning coffee and solving all the world's troubles with friends and visitors. The malts, shakes, sodas, ice cream cones, and sundies are to die for.

If in the White Lake Area, be sure to stop at Lipkas. Lunch has a mix of standards and creative fare. All food is home made. Pleasant atmosphere that takes you back in time.

My family and I went to Lipkas in March 2017. Even though it was March it felt like we were in Mayberry. The service was beyond excellent, the float, sundae and malt we had were wonderful. I know we will be back very soon!
