A Quick Stop for Ice Cream

Stopped by because my daughter had a craving for ice cream. Everything was fine, it was very clean and the ice cream was good. The lady was pleasant. 100% of the teenage girls I spoke with loved it.

located at the end (or beginning) of town, the chocolate peanut butter ice cream cone hit the spot after a hot walk.

The service was good and the ice-cream was also, I just had a hard time with the very young employees handling money and not washing their hands before they touched the next customer's edibles, and not even using a napkin to handle the ice-cream cones. Thank goodness they had the option of Styrofoam cups.

Though it is somewhat hidden away at the end of a number of stores, it was a pleasant surprise. The ice cream was good, service was attentive and outdoor seating was comfortable including a couch.

After dinner, we headed into downtown where we found this ice cream shop and I was able to get my usual Vanilla soft serve with Sprinkles. It is a small, quite shop but has a good array of choices and as the only option was pretty decent.

This place does not do anything special, it is walk up and get your cone of ice cream/frozen yogurt, Basic. Very small, which is crowded with 5 people in it. If you need your cold fix it does the job.

Just visited Calistoga and do not understand the high reviews of this place. We decided on Scoops and Swirls instead of Baskin Robbins because it was a local ice cream business. What a disappointment. The selection of flavors was very limited. When I looked at the tub of chocolate peanut butter it had ice crusts on top of it. It... More

Definitely a tiny spot and it was packed when we visited...being that it was 104 degrees that day makes sense. Nice flavors and plenty of options between soft serve, ice cream, milkshakes, toppings, etc.

Great ice cream & yogurt. It's small and usually full of people. Not 31 flavors but enough of a selection for everyone. Shakes, sundaes, banana splits, etc... Loved the Cake Batter ice cream. And the young man who served us Saturday night was very polite!
