The Corner Door Fountain and Books

How may times ca one pass an ice ream advertisement without stopping?  Apparently quite a few, specially when in passing one is always on the way to somewhere, or not necessarily needing ICE CREAM.

After passing by the ad for $1.00 ice cream cones, more times than I can remember, I decided to make this little ice cream place my destination.  It is called The Corner Door, and it is an ice cream eatery and bookshop locates on Argonne St., downtown Millwood.  It is seriously, now, one of my all-time favorite ice cream stores.

I loved the historic area of Millwood too.  In the summer times, on Wednesdays from 3-7 PM, the little town of Millwood hosts "farmers markets" where you can purchase fresh produce from growers.  That is really the only other time I have visited Millwood.  Alot of the shops there that used to stand vacant are now occupied and Millwood is really quite the nostalgic... historic... maybe "quaint,"  little place.

The Corner Door as a business has been open  here at 3301 N. Arrgone eighteen years, and they participate in the local Millwood farmer's market as well as operate this store.  It keeps them quite busy.

Here is the door, on the corner, just as advetised.

Inside there  is much more than ice cream. They also serve soup and sandwiches, coffee tea and salads...

But wait!

There is more.....

I am guessing there are over a thousand treasures to be found in this shop!  They sell books of all kinds and wonderful puppets, and even some handmade crafts.  There are paintings for sale, a fun selection of Spokane History materials, if you are a history buff,  fantasy books and  folk and Renaissance music on CD too.  It is quite a lovely and colorful menagerie.... perfect for something fun to do with a special person in your life.

Be warned though, it is a little cramped for seating if you have a large party.... and certainly you do not want to get your ice cream on the books.... but you can take a cone "to go" and eat it at the park.  It is very cool if you enjoy this sort of thing.

The ice cream was the best part.... wonderfully good ice cream... I had Huckleberry, a fantastic treat for a buck!  They make malts and shakes and bagels and muffins and Italian sodas...( Cremosa) too!

Just look at the happy kids!
