Some folks buy just a simple cone here and then sit outside on one of the weathered benches to leisurely watch the busy world drive by. Others prefer to sit inside what was once the town's Wells Fargo Bank and indulge in a fancy fountain item. Breakfast includes omelettes; lunch brings on sandwiches and burgers; and the house specialty is homemade pie. Many of the antique decorations are for sale.
