We've always passed by it on our way home from SCC, but on this day decided to stop in for some homemade ice cream and corn dog. Little Knoop's is no stranger to us since we're here almost every Mid-May/June taking the family for cherry-picking, but had yet to try any of their much advertised homemade goodies. Place is small, but cute! Cute little benches to enjoy treats outside, next to some very loud geese. They supply home jams/preserves/jellies/honey/olive oil and other variety of sauces like cherry chipotle, honey mustard. Their refrigerated display case holds some Greek faves: baklava (layered flaky filo pastry filled with chopped walnuts, butter, and honey syrup), spanakopita (filo dough brushed with butter and layered with filling of feta cheese, Spinach, and herbs), mousaka (baked combination of ground beef layered with eggplant, potatoes, topped with a cream sauce and grated cheese) to name a few. And dessert display case with some signature cheese cake, muffins, and apple pie. We ordered 2 ice creams and a corn dog. The homemade waffle coat on the ice cream and dog was the hook-line-and-sinker. Warm, aromatically inviting, visually unique w/ it's curvy lines and circles off the waffle grill... beautiful and delectable w/ an ice cream or a hot dog. Hot dog was FAT and the added cherry chipotle sauce and honey mustard made for a killer taste, sweet/sour/salty balanced out very well. My apricot and vanilla and lil-bro's mixed ice cream were all very delicious. I liked that it wasn't too sweet, but a bit tangy and creamy enough to have a distinct homemade honey-riffic taste. Our damage 10 bucks. We love, love! supporting local businesses! So of course we'll be back here for more treats. The elderly lady behind the counter makes everything from scratch and just loves cooking and baking. Very friendly, sweet, and will chop-it up w/ you. Her husband is quite the charmer ... ;p great couple! We'll cya again soon! Planning to order the cheese cake for the upcoming holidays for just 19.95.
