The new owners have done a great job in keeping the Idyllwild feel. The ordering line is typically out the door due to its' popularity on weekends. There is an article on the front window explaining that the current owners took over the shop just...More

If your looking for every kind of jerky under the sun this may well be the place. We tried several kinds and all were outstanding. Will be stopping again for sure on our way to, over and through Idyllwild.

My first time in this town, came through on a motorcycle. Parked a few blocks away, strolled around. Not hungry enough for lunch, I found this place with fresh local beef jerky. Next time I'll get ice cream AND some jerky too.

Whenever we are in Idyllwild we get a double scoop ice cream in a waffle cone. Delicious high quality ice cream. Makes a great afternoon break. Quaint, charming, good service, wonderful ice cream treats.
