Margie’s has been around since 1921, and looks like it. This is the kind of place where an adult can order the “World’s Largest Terrapin” - a sundae with 15 scoops of ice cream - and not feel judged. Eat your giant sundae in a clamshell bowl with gravy boats of homemade hot fudge and caramel on the side, or take said sundae to-go when it’s too nice to sit inside somewhere, no matter how charming that place is.
