Any old Houstonites remember a Galleria ice cream parlor?

Can anyone remember the name of the ice cream parlor that was located in the Galleria Shopping center? It had a "mainstreet", "olde tyme" ice cream parlor ambiance, red, white and pink decor and they had enormous sundaes, including one in a punch bowl that came out with sparklers, horns, sirens and I don't know what all else. They ran it all over the store on a specially cut out gurney manned by two waitstaff. I was trying to describe it to someone and cannot for the life of me recall the name.

I know it was there from early on and have photos of birthday parties there so it was definitely some time in the 70's. Yes I am old. I do recall that having your party their meant you were the height of cool. So much has changed at the Galleria.
