This place has a really cool atmosphere and always has great service. The food however, is what makes you want to come back. They have a great selection of paninis and I suggest getting a cup of one of their soups to go with it!

The town is cool and this place sets the stage. Real cool atmosphere and even better food. You will have to show restraint when looking at the ice cream, floats, and desserts. Don't go to Sparta and not at least pop in.

I had the pesto and beef panini and it was out of this world. The sandwich and the service were great and the store itself is quite a blast from the past. Make sure you stop by!

Fun atmosphere, great food. Back to the 50's atmosphere with lots of memorabilia. Great sandwiches with homemade bread, desserts are excellent and the Tomato Bisque soup is very tasty. They cater to large groups also for meetings and such. The back patio has featured local...More
