Charming little downtown area with great street parking. We found this wonderful little restaurant/ice cream parlor where everything was homemade and delicious. Friendly staff and service. Everything was made to order and homemade pie too. Just delighted that we found this hidden gem.

We had panini's for dinner and they were quite large. They came with veggie chips. We also ordered a Boston Cooler and it was very small, not worth the money. It was a cute place and they were friendly.

We stopped here in Corning. Really great sandwiches and soup. Terrific ice cream. The bakery items looked great although we did not try them.
