Some of the best home made ice cream you will find in Sacramento. Located in a local neighborhood for the past 75 years. Large menu including sherberts, sorbets, yogurts, sandwiches, shakes, sundaes, and shave ice. It is all here and you will be back. The ice cream is super creamy and rich... read more

One of the best ice creams in town! Not a lot of indoor seating but outside tables too! Been around for a long time!

We had a salami, tuna, and a hot dog. All were good. Grandson ate all of the salami and then a kids cone. We enjoyed that we could sit outside and the dog could join us. The ice cream is very good.

The best every....the homemade, old fashion flavor is so delish, it is undescribable. You can never go wrong no matter what flavor you get.

We went with friends who said it is the best ice cream and it didn't disappoint. The line was out the door but it went very quickly. There is a person taking orders that is standing in the line so when you get to the counter to pay they are already making your order and things go very fast. They... More

Went to get ice cream and the line was out the door. We still got in line thinking it would be a long wait but the line went quickly. The ice cream is outstanding and worth the wait. There is some seating inside but also plenty outside. I would recommend this place.

This is a great place family place to really enjoy some really good ice cream. During the summer hours you will may have to wait to order. This place is very popular with the locals. They have inside and outside seating, just be prepared to wait.
