I brought my mother here for lunch while we were vacationing along Lake George. She uses a walker so we used the driveway along the side of the building to access the parking lot behind the Ice Cream Parlor and enter from the back. Both...More

A great place for a light dinner and ice cream. Burgers, sandwiches and salads are offered with creative twists. The sandwiches include a small salad like potato or macaroni or chips. One recommendation would be to offer fries as a side. Different Perry ice cream...More

We found this little gem a few years ago when venturing out for ice cream. We always stop in now and love the authentic feel and good food. The store upstairs has a very nicely put together collection of goods. Well worth stopping in.
