More Than Just Ice Cream Restaurant Review

: This is the kind of place that really does have something for everyone. With its friendly diner vibe and mammoth dessert portions, MTJIC is a locals’ favorite, but also a find for visitors in search of a kid-friendly spot for lunch or dinner. Burgers and sandwiches, entrée salads --- try the Cosmopolitan with chopped romaine hearts, plum tomatoes, shredded carrots, avocado, mushrooms, roasted red peppers, kalamata olives and goat cheese --- and desserts are tasty, with prices that won’t break the bank. Don't miss the signature mile-high apple pie, which is big enough for two or three to share.
