I saw a recent reviewer say he/she has been going here since the '60's. Well, it's been here since 1932, so it goes back further than that. The decor looks like what it must have looked like in 1932 - lots of wood on the walls and in the booths. The menu is mostly soups and sandwiches, but everything is homemade. They had Italian wedding soup the day we visited - very good. The tomato bisque is tomato soup with - surprise! - blue cheese in it, so very tangy. Sandwiches are nothing spectacular, but all ingredients are fresh, so very good. Of course, you are here for the ice cream, and that's great. Not overly rich, but very creamy and tasty. And when you are finished eating, I DARE you to walk past all the chocolate at the front without buying anything. Our only objection was the service, which was pretty slow with only one table person working the place on a warm Saturday afternoon. She told us "that's how they've always done things here." Well, maybe that should change, even if the ice cream and soup recipes and the decor should not.
