Very cool little ice cream joint patterned after the old school fountains that you went to as a kid. Ice cream and shakes are good. The old fashioned cherry coke that they advertise though is nothing more than coke with cough syrup tasting cherry flavoring. It is nothing like an old fashioned Cherry Coke at all. The people working there have a sign about being crazy, but I found them to be impersonal and unenthusiastic. Not sure why they don't take your order while you sit down at the fountain- you have to go to the register at front and order what you are getting and then sit down where they bring it to you. The little novelty shop attached to it has some neat little gadgets and trinkets. It is a cool little place, but not a must do by any stretch.

Stopped in for first lattes then iced coffee later and all were good. Looked like a great place for a ice cream treat or cinnamon roll. Friendly staff.

Stopped by here after a morning stroll in Joseph. Kids had ice cream which came in huge servings for the relatively inexpensive price. Adults had Italian sodas which were quite good. Would go back, especially as things were quite inexpensive. Outdoor seating is available if you come by with your dog.

We went in one morning and ordered two iced white chocolate mochas. They were very good, sweet and didn't have that strong coffee taste. However the lady working in the morning wasn't very welcome. She seemed kinda impatient and unfriendly while we ordered. But at the end she had lightened up a bit.
Later we went in for ice cream and the two girls working then were wonderful and very sweet. Plus it was the only place we could find that had birthday cake ice cream.
