Ever since "Up" came out, I had always wanted to revisit Fenton's Ice Cream, but since there is none in Wisconsin, I had to wait until I went to California. When I was finally able too, the food and service didn't disappoint. Everything was delicious and my avocado burger was heaven. And to top it all off, the ice cream... More

Located of one of many wonderful local Oakland high streets, Piedmont Avenue. Fenton's Creamery is known for outstanding for it's outstanding ice cream and soda fountain.

Personally, I'm not sure what all the fuss is about. The food looks to be Denny's style stuff with ice cream, but is it worth the wait and the hassle and the throngs of people? I say no. The ice cream was good, but I wouldn't explicitly seek it out and go crazy over it. Also, it was pretty expensive... More

Fentons is an Oakland institution and the birthplace of rocky road ice cream. Avoid the crowds and eat your ice cream as you stroll to the nearby Mountain View Cemetery.

There is a reason there's often a line weaving out the door of Fenton's, and that is because their ice cream is superb! I especially like their sugarless vanilla, with hot fudge on the side. That way, the fudge doesn't melt the ice cream, and you can dip it as you please.
