This is one of the most busy places in Jefferson and always seems to be crowded (too crowded for my liking) but it is a good store. They have a little bit of everything. Candy, ice cream, knic-knack's (however you spell it), and plenty of other stuff. Good place for getting souvenirs.

We purchased 2 Cherry Floats and a Root Beer Float from the Soda Fountain and they were divine! What a great little store. Clean and Full of Novelties. Only 1 Bathroom and it's in need of a renovation!! Stop and play checkers while you enjoy your treat.

You could probably spend all day in here and not see everything. Toys, novelties, saltwater taffy, homemade pralines, bluebell ice cream, homemade salsas jams and jellies. We got some cute Mother's Day gifts.

This is a very unique general store. Lots of unusual merchandise and very value priced. Their special is the Moody hot dog I highly encourage you to try these. Simply put, these are the best hot dogs on the planet. I'll definitely recommend this place to anyone traveling in or near Jefferson Texas.

We visited this store multiple times because there is so much to see. They have a neat little bar with ice cream and snacks to eat. Very friendly employees, cute touristy things to look at. Great photo ops. The old truck out front makes a great background photo and the people walking by are more than happy to take a... More

Finally got to try ice cream sodas just like in those black and white movies! Great selection of sodas and really really cool antique bar and cash registers. They also make their own waffle cones which is cool.

I went in because the sign said it had a soda bar! It was delish!! It is truly a 'general' store with a little of everything. Definitely a fun 'stop and browse' kinda place.

This store is huge, and includes an old fashioned soda and ice cream counter. Great collection of interesting souvenirs and also home made candy, salsa, apple butters, etc.
