We stopped for an afternoon treat. They had muffins, cakes, cinnamon rolls, hand dipped ice cream, all kinds of coffee, candy, toys, and other food items for sale. Everything was great! The store is so cute as well, much like an old time soda fountain.

Wonderful friendly people. The food was perfect and the ice cream...wow. It was like stepping back in time when life was slower and people took time to visit. Will for sure go back every time I have the chance.

Sandwiches were ok but ice cream was the bomb! Malt was great! Little trinkets but no great deals. A cute stop and enjoy the shops on the square!

Soda fountain in operation since the 1930's. Ice cream and sandwiches available, pastries in the morning. Cute toys ala vintage style. Lots of pickles, relishes, jams, sauces, salsas for sale. Nice selection of kitchen tools if you need any. Interesting building/architecture. Worth a quick visit...More

Wow so much cute stuff. They have raw diamonds so you know what to look for when digging for diamonds

I think the 'General Store' and 'Variety Store' are one in the same. I'm leaving the same review I left for the 'Variety Store'. We stopped in for ice cream cones after digging for diamonds. There were about four of five people working. Each person...More

We loved this old fashion ice cream parlor. The location is in a perfect spot. It was so good we went twice in one day. Will visit again. A+
