They have an old fashioned 1905 soda fountain and candy by the pound in big glass jars, just like in the old days. Coffee, ice cream and soda fountain items are served all day, so it’s a great place to get into the shade and cool off.

In addition to gifts and specialty food items to purchase and take with you, they serve a delicious lunch from 11:00am to 2:00pm every day. Menu items include tasty sandwiches, crisp salad plates, delicious soups and fresh-baked casseroles. A sign board outside announces the Soup of the Day and the Special Plate. Call-in and take-out orders are welcome.
