This ice cream shop is perfect for a little town. It looks old fashion on the inside and the ice cream choices are many. Good creamy ice creams.

Stopped in for dessert after dinner on Saturday. The young lady behind the counter was very attentive and helpful. She was willing to make a suggestion for me and she was right on with the choice.
