Welcome to our web site!

On this home page, we'll introduce our restaurant and highlight other pages of our site.

Exciting News - We are planning for the addition of soups, salads, and sandwiches to  be added late Spring or early summer this year.  Watch this web site for details coming soon.

The owners of Papa Z's Ice Cream and Sandwich Shoppe are pleased to be bringing to Mt. Vernon the best homemade hand-dipped ice cream, frozen custard, and fudge available in the area.
In the late winter or early summer, we anticipate we will be announcing the addition of sandwichs and salads to our menu.  We plan to serve you sandwiches, low in fat and salt, yet tasty, and healthy enough to eat every day.

We'll use our home page to highlight the key features of our restaurant so people have the information they need at their fingertips. In addition to our homemade ice cream and fudge, we will eventually serve salads and sandwiches.  We have a party room for birthday parties and family gatherings, a outside area for your enjoyment, and video games for the kids.
Every bite of Papaz's ice cream or fudge is made right there in the store, as needed. Therefore our food is fresh, delicious, and, if you come at the right time, you will be able to watch us through viewing windows as we make it!
