Ranked #3 of 4 Dessert in San Carlos
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 August 2016 via mobile

We walked in at 9.10pm Sunday 7th August. Trip Advisor said the store closed at 9.30pm. We didn't see the door sign which said 9.00pm closing. The guy serving had nearly finished closing up all the ice cream containers but he graciously opened up and served us ample portions of delicious ice cream. We were grateful; the store was blessed in that 4 more people came in making his takings for those extra 15 minutes $40! This is good ice cream; go earlier in the day and there is a breakfast and lunch menu.

This neighborhood gem is a great gathering place for families with children and pups. Ice cream selection is large and quality is good. Always enjoy being at this friendly place. It's hard not to be happy with you are eating ice cream.

Worst ice cream experience of my life. The portions were barely bigger than spoon-sized. We asked for hot fudge and were offered lukewarm chocolate (which he assured us was hot fudge). The service was a joke.

We had checked reviews but clearly did not notice that the good reviews were referring to prior management.

We stopped here on a hot Thursday afternoon. There was one guy serving on, friendly enough. We each had 2 scoops in a cup. Each of us chose different flavours so we could try out as many as possible. I particularly liked the banana. Hubby liked the watermelon. George and Jean voted Oregon blackberry. Lots of tables inside and a few on the street.

It was a busy evening, as you would expect in spring. The service was good. The sole staff person provided us with a list of ingredients to verify whether certain flavors had egg. The ice cream was good. We got the smallest one. My wife had the affogato. I had the goofy foot which was good.
