  • It was a great pleasure to visit this place! Competent guided tour through the very special house and it's history. And a very nice, small café with real flowers on the tables and a wonderful young owner who runs this business with head and heart! If I would live in the area, I would go there very often! Definitely one of the 1000 Cafés in the world you must see in your life!
  • As another person mentioned, no review prior to 3/20/2015 is valid. The Shoe House is a piece of highway history. I'm very glad that it is in the great hands of a couple that want future generations to enjoy the quirky house and the story of its builder. Stop in starting the first day of Spring!
  • The new owners are fabulous! They are doing such a great job of bringing this iconic and historic site back into the public eye and its former glory. Really nice people. And the tours are so informative and enjoyable! Also the ice cream is delicious! Definitely stop by if you're in the area!
  • Really nice tour of the shoe, delicious ice cream, very friendly owners and staff. Fun place to hangout w my wife and daughter.
  • Great tour and really nice learning about Mahlon Haines. The new owners are very nice people! They made the experience all the better. Mellie's Makery is very sweet; great ice cream, fudge, brownies etc. We can't wait to go back!
