TAMAQUA, Pa. - Everyone knows how good it feels walking into a neighborhood joint that you've gone to since you were a kid. That's what Leiby's was for Tamaqua.
"After football games, you all came here to Leiby's. And after basketball games, you all came to Leiby's. Everybody loved Leiby's," said Bernadette Seifert.
They came for the food, and especially the desserts.
Regulars were crushed 10 years ago when the original shut down, but now it's back.
"It's great to see everybody here. It's great to see the community come together," said one patron.
The original business started as milk delivery, and the ice cream became legendary, through the Poconos and the Lehigh Valley.
The restaurant was mobbed Friday during the afternoon lunch.
Barbara Weaver owns a shop connected to the restaurant.
"Alot of the elderly people in the area, their children worked here. And now it's continuing, the tradition. Their children are coming in here to work. It's a big thing for them, for this to reopen and come back," she said.
