Snack Place

“Imagine going back in time to when you could walk into a candy store and buy anything for a penny to 5 cents/piece.... that's exactly the feel of the Little Popcorn Store. You can fill your bag with candy and still walk out having only spent $2-$3... and there's a special nostalgic feeling about the candy/popcorn shop itself being situated in an old alleyway. A local's recommendation for sure!”
