Family favorite

This is not only my family favorite but most of vista's and Oceanside's residents. Peppertree has been in vista for many years, the employees there are quick and friendly. Great place to go on a warm day.

This place is absolutely great. My family loves all of the options and great tasting treats. We've never tried the food … always just the treats =) The only down side is that it's pretty badly organized and can be a bit confusing with their 2 window system (which I have never seen used correctly, only to confuse people about...

This place has been here forever and they don't disappoint! Awesome shakes and malts but my favorite is the vanilla dipped cone! There's a reason why this place has been here since the 1950's! We love coming here, rain or shine!

I have not been here since I was a little kid. It is such a wonderful place to come back to and one of the few places that is still here. The people are great, the location is easy to get to, the out doors is wonderful to sit at, and the ice cream is well tasty.

Extra creamy and thick homemade, old style milkshakes and dipped cones....Extra thick fresh banana is my favorite. Locally owned and family run business for 50 years...Vista classic

Peppertree has been around for many years and they always have great ice cream. It's the only place we go.

Great shakes, burgers, sundaes. You name it! If they make it, it's going to be great! Why eat at a chain when you can have fresh, made to order local food? You won't regret it and once, you've tried it, you'll be going back again and again.

Ok, so we only go to peppertree for the ice cream - have not eaten there. This place has been around since the 60's I think. Real casual, hang out and eat your soft serve dipped cone - oh yeah!! Or you can get a shake, hard scoop or food (burgers, fries, sandwiches - even some mexican dishes) at the... More

You haven't lived until you've gone to Peppertree. Just go. Just go. You won't regret it. Order anything and it will be delicious.
