A best kept secret among the locals, this old-fashioned ice cream place, complete with swinging picnic tables outside and a no-frills interior café-style dinning space, is a wonderful place to enjoy simple food (yummy ice cream as well as hamburgers, hot dogs, fries and onion rings), in a casual setting. It does get crowded on weekends.
