A must see place if you're in the Wilton area. Memorabilia galore and most likely you'll have a chance to hear a story or two from George or Thelma themselves. Don't forget to get some homemade ice cream!

What a real treasure this place is!!! This quaint little shop is oodles better than any modern, trendy restaurant. The decor has hardly changed in its 100 years of operation and I am so glad. They even continue to use an old push button cash register instead of a computerized one.

George and Thelma are just the friendliest people on earth and make each and every customer feel like the most important person in the world. They talk with everyone. The food is simple and first rate. The homemade ice cream is just divine.

It's a shame more places aren't like this - this is Americana pure and simple.

I love how they have the original decor from the old malt shop days. Just a great place to take family and friends to get good ice cream...the workers are very friendly to talk to.... if you are anywhere around Wilton I would definitely stop by here.

This little place has the best chocolate soda in Iowa. Cary Grant, the actor, has eaten a grilled cheese sandwich here with the chocolate soda, and Brooke Shields, the actress, visited with her mother. The couple operating this place have kept the family business going. In its heyday, the Wilton Candy Kitchen also had a delightful little museum in back.
