We were passing thru for the weekend and wanted ice cream. I had the best chocolate marshmallow ice cream ever!

The soup was hot and very good. The lunch I had was fresh made and excellent. I found the cost to be good and the quality of the food excellent.

Enjoyed one lunch and four dinners during a one week stay in the Ephrata area. The wait staff was friendly and efficient and we really enjoyed the daily soup specials, especially the tomato florentine soup. Restaurant decor includes a fascinating assortment of vintage ice cream signs and a display of ice cream scoops (ca.1900 - 1950). Great menu and place... More

They had great sandwiches but only sides are chips and pickles, which was fine because it left room for dessert! Service was fast and friendly. Highly recommend for a no fuss lunch at a great price!

Ok, not much else to say. Grilled cheese sandwich and soup. Soup was probably canned and the sandwich was a little soggy.

Two of us stopped for a light meal after being at Hershey Amusement Park. I had the chopped potato soup and other had the tuna fish sandwich. Both were very good. Finished with ice cream cone and sundae. Ice cream was very good.

Always fresh ingredients in sandwiched. Soup choices are excellent and varied. Ice cream is made there and delicious. A brown-swiss sundae is our favorite. Fast, friendly service.

We both had butternut squash soup and a sandwich. The soup was hot and delicious and we were both pleased with our sandwiches. Enjoyed some of their delicious ice cream for dessert. The meal was very reasonably priced, too! Will definitely go their again.

Been stopping here at least once every August when on vacation at Starlite Camping Resort. Nice breakfast, and for an evening snack, great ice cream.
