My daughter and I wanted dessert to go. Stopped by and ordered our sundaes. Big scoops and yummy treats. Old fashioned chocolate and vanilla sodas with ice cream.

This is a small little cafe that is open for breakfast and lunch. Hours are from 5 am to 2 pm. Great breakfast. Medium price, around $10 per person. Food was great. It's a small place, so you may have wait a while.

My wife and I visited the Red Hut Cafe (the older one - not the soda fountain one) and were not disappointed. It looks like a dive, but the place was packed and the food was great. My wife had the fresh berries waffle and...More
