Meeting room upstairs. Seniors went for ice cream, many flavors and specials. Home made ice cream. Fruit and nutty flavors. Can take out pints or quarts. Creamy ice cream and their banana splits are to die for.

This establishment use to be an old farm house converted to an ice cream shop. The prices are a little higher than regular shops, but the ice cream is homemade. I got a banana milkshake that was delicious. Don't go by without stopping in, you...More
