So good! Saw this on our way to our hotel & looked it up on TripAdvisor & saw it was rated #1. Found out why, it was fantastic & portions are large. Well worth the $. Glad we stopped.

The lemonade is great too. It was silly that the price for a regular and a large was like 12 cents. The Custard is great, go during their "happy Hour" and get one buy one get one half price...we missed it by like five minutes and there was no mercy.

Came here for a caliche with peanut butter cups and it was exactly what I needed. Friendly staff, great custard! p.s. The small is not small at all :)

There were very similar things on get up and get over there in your bed I don't know what to do hello the Caliche menu as our local custard shop, so there wasn't anything new and exciting. I ordered the Apple Pie ala More which I was expecting to be vanilla custard and a slice of apple pie blended together... More

The ice cream cone and shake we had were good, but prices were rather expensive for what you get. Almost $3 for the cone and almost $4 for a small shake. We had to at least try it.

I stopped in for lunch after visiting the space museum. I had a hot dog special which hit the spot. The girl who took my order was extremely friendly while explaining the many options. I also saw the owner I believe and another girl outside cleaning up and getting things ready for a busy Saturday. They were both friendly too.... More

Caliche's is one fabulous spot for treats. If you're in Alamogordo and like sweets don't miss it. They have some unique desserts or you can build your own. It's a walk-up and drive-up place with no inside seating. We found the walk up a lot faster for service than the drive-up.

Amazing sundaes! highly recommended. Too bad it's only a drive through, I would love to have my sundae inside, but we sat outside on a bench and enjoyed a lovely ice cream.

This place is amazing - went twice during our visit. Don't let the custard fool you - its the best ice cream I have ever tasted. Highly recommended. Order at the window. Friendly staff too.
