Delicious!!

Located across the street from Los Bagels, this place is a must visit if staying in Arcata. The organic ice cream is smooth and creamy with many flavours to choose from. Waffle bowls are fresh and tasty!

Tucked away on a side street, we would not have found this wonderful ice-cream spot without a local guide. The ice cream is fabulous, served in your choice of freshly made waffle cones. The line is out-the-door, but moves along. They have a few tables and a giraffe swing, which accommodates 4 people and is much in demand. I had... More

This is a nice little ice cream shop with a nice selection of flavors including lavender and a cardamon orange. They make all their cones right there in the shop and of course, it smells heavenly inside because of that. I am super happy that they added a vegan selection (Chocolate chip in a coconut milk base rather than dairy... More

The scoop is always a must on our visits to Arcada, the ice cream is fresh,organic and has innovative favors. We especially like the vanilla lavender,grasshopper,and chocolate orange chip. The store itself is very fun and whimsical with a giraffe table that can seat 6 and a wooden merry go ground like rabbit and a children's size ice cream counter... More

Not only are the flavors really,really good but the hours are great (open until 10pm or 10:30). The fruit flavors taste so fresh I have never had ice cream taste so good. I love that they use local organic ingredients, but the best part: split scoops!! I don't have to decide on just one flavor: i can get two small... More

I know it seems hard to believe but it is true. I was in Burlington Vt when Ben and Jerry's started. It was a far cry from the paltry mass produced sub-cream of the present. I know great ice cream and the scoop leaves all others on its wake. The highest quality ingredients show in the end product. No milkshakes... More
