Best Ice Cream in Town

Delicious ice cream and generous servings. Not only are they friendly with customers, but they also help out the surrounding schools by donating gift certificates. I highly recommend this place.

Okay, so it was fine. Just as good as you would get at 31 flavors or anywhere else. Not really worth the trip. There are so many amazing dessert options in Pasadena, Alhambra and the surrounding cities.

You must visit this ice cream place with your love one if you ever come by the area. My husband and I have become regular to spend some sweet moment every Friday.

This ice cream parlor has been there forever. You walk into the place and you feel like you are back in time, an old-fashioned decor. Sweet! They have many flavors of ice cream. The quality is definitely tops! We usually go there after dining out in the area. It is a must for an after dinner treat and any time... More

We came in w/ a large party. The girl behind the counter had a bad attitude and very clearly did not want to talk to me. They hustled us trough the line and I got a really unfriendly vibe from the staff overall. Icecream is good but staff is not friendly, haven't seen them smile yet.

This is a trip down memory lane! It's an old-fashioned ice cream parlor. Malts! Milkshakes! It's all delicious and it's over well-priced. Bon appetit!

Walked in on a hot summer day and there was a short line. You are given max of 3 samples of any flavors. There are a mixture of asian flavors as well as the usual flavors. All of the flavors are delicious and creamy. If you intend to get 3 single scoops, its cheaper to get the "Your's truely" which... More

It was a hot summer day and what better treat than ice cream. It has been in business 95 years. Every flavor I tested was soooo creamy good. The fresh peach ice cream was very tasty according to those that chose that flavor. I chose mocha almond fudge. Yummy!!
