I wasn't really a fan of ice cream until I tried their homemade awesomeness. I am a fan for life now! Organic and local ingredients make this an extra special treat.

Flavors vary from day to day but there is always something new and different to try. Don't miss the fresh daily made on the premises waffle cones!

This is a great place for homemade ice cream. They have a huge selection of flavors and it changes all the time. Which can be a bummer if you had one you really liked and then they don't have it the next time you visit.

Had the chocolate hazelnut gelato and it was very good. Ordered the single scoop in a waffle cone. Generous portion of creamy goodness! Cone was made there and was very tasty. Right on the bay front, so just outside is an amazing view of the bay and the marina. Definitely a place to try if you're looking for some good... More

This is the place for those with a curious palate for creative ice cream! The shop is conveniently located on the Eureka Boardwalk. Grab a cone and enjoy the scenic Arcata Bay. The shop has friendly and efficient service that serves yummy ice cream. The prices are reasonable as well. The treats are made from ingredients purchased from local markets;... More

Our family of 4 loved it! They make the cones on site, the ice cream is from the Straus creamery and it's delicious. They have reusable stainless steel spoons for testers, you drop it in the bin and they give you another. We loved that. Enough of the plastic spoons. The staff was very friendly and clearly happy to work... More

It was hard to decide which flavor to pick. All were interesting and looked great. The home made waffle cone was a winner. I had the strawberry, lime sorbet and it was delicious!

Organic ice cream and they make the cones on site! There was a line, but the service was quicker than expected with only two people behind the counter.

I was happy to see that this ice cream, still tasted like ice cream to me. It is a softer variety in texture, which only makes it easier to eat. I chose a scoop of the Mint Phat and one of the Coffee Toffee. The mint tasted like mint ice cream with something like an oreo cookie pieces inside. The... More
