Hot days require cold treats and Caliche's frozen Custard is top notch! The vanilla is very flavorful and silky smooth. The small cone is 2 small scoops was a nice size for ~$2.50 (est. 4oz) . There is only a walk up window to order and pick up and some outside seating and no inside seating. A huge variety of... More

Great, cheerful staff and wonderful yogurt. They serve a green chili sundae although we were not brave enough to try this. Drive through also available.

The custard is what they are known for but.....I really am addicted to their flavored Ice Tea the raspberry has actual raspberries in it YUM! That is my favorite but they have many flavors to choose from like Mango, Strawberry etc Check it out on a hot day just a perfect thirst quencher!

Not only is the custard amazing but the service was great! Super friendly and nice order out in less than a minute and the custard was to die for. Try the gizmo-salted. Or the sand box. Both were excellent.

On our way home from dinner, we stopped here for desert. If not the best frozen custard we've ever had it was close. The variety of custard dishes was the largest I've ever seen. If my waist line could take it I would have tried several, but alas, I did the right thing and only had one serving.

After living in Las Cruces, I miss this place the most. Every time I visit LC, going to Caliche's (formerly Scoopy's) is a mandatory stop. I get a U Name It sundae with strawberries, caramel and unsalted pecans. So yummy...

I've never understood all the fuss about this place. Maybe it's because there really aren't any other 'ice cream' shops in town? They only serve Vanilla. You can get that Vanilla just about any way you want it - sundaes, floats, shakes, cones. But, again only Vanilla. All the fuss for Vanilla? Seriously? Probably a fun place to stop w/... More

After experiencing some other bad food choices in Las Cruces, Caliche's was a welcome surprise. Can't go wrong with some hot dogs and ice cream.

Every visit I have made to Caliches has been at worst a good visit. They are consistently speedy an accurate as well as friendly. Their custard is very tasty. My family loves this place.
