Fun to check out, nice way to end the day!

Service was very good, and ice cream was good, like a 8 out of 10. Nothing special, but its not bad. Thought the shop was really cute, and liked seeing all the different things inside. They have a few retro soda bottles.

Popular place with local families and travellers passing through. Across the street from Hotel Oregon. Ice cream is good. There is more than ice cream, too.

They have wonderful no sugar added ice cream! The black cherry cream is especially good. There is at least one other flavor of no sugar added ice cream. I can not remember what it is at the moment.

We had just finished a very nice and enjoyable dinner next door at Thistle during an unusually hot spell, but decided to skip dessert at the non air conditioned restaurant in favor of something a little colder. It was in the later part of the evening when the staff was preparing the close, but they were very friendly and accommodating.... More

It was a hot day in July and we had just finished dinner at Thistle. We just made it in before closing but the people were more than welcoming. As we enjoyed some very tasty and unusual offerings we all talked about what to see and do in the area and as we were leaving they gave us 'end of... More

After dinner on a hot Willamette Valley evening,we stopped for a scoop of ice cream. They were having a fundraising night with a portion going to a local school. The place is fun with a old victorian decor.There are not a lot of flavor choices, but the ice cream is really great quality and flavorful. We enjoyed every lick. We... More

As ice cream parlors go, this one was very good. There was a lot of variety to choose from and I chose my personal favorite, moose tracks, which isn't always easy to find. My husband had salted caramel. Places to sit, both inside and outside.

Wow, what great ice cream! Lot's of yummy flavors with all the usual and a few unusual options for sauces, toppings and other goodies. The salted caramel ice cream was my personal favorite. Another wonderful place to take a break in McMinnville.
