  • Stopped in and had a great lunch. If you are in the area it's a must stop in. Had a hamburger and a hot fudge brownie sunday. However I'm sure any choice would be a good one.  more »

  • Great food. Wonderful service. Love this place. Great place to take a friend and just sit and visit
  • This place is a real gem. Hommade ice cream and sherbet is so darn good. Go here. I used to go here with my dad when I was a kid. It's like I'm a kid again.
  • One of the oldest icecream parlors still left in US. Great staff and amazing history. A must see. The icecream is all handmade and delicious too.
  • If you ever wanted to time travel then you must visit Tom's Ice Cream Bowl. It's in the original building since the 1940's. The magnificent staff in their nostalgic white shirts, aprons, and bowties complete the experience of years past. No matter what you order from the menu you immediately realize that the lost in time resturant is not a gimmick to attract customers. The food would draw the crowds without the added pleasure of feeling like your in a diner in 1955. The main attraction of course is the Ice Cream.... oh what adventure in decadence this can be. Homemade, fresh, a variety of flavors and combinations served in cones of various make, bowls, boats, shakes, and toppings. Simply incredibly delicious. You pay at a register located at the end of a fresh roasted nuts bar that shares space with chocolates and candies. All with pricing that is very fair and serving sizes that are abundsnt. Come hungry and leave with take home and you won't be dissapointed. Ed
  • Love this place! It's like going back in time when you walk through the doors. Sweet little 50's style ice cream shop. The ice cream is amazing! I'd recommend to anyone. We go anytime we're in the area.
