Serendipity is a quaint ice cream shop on the main street in McMinnville, OR. What impressed me most was that the proceeds of the shop helped support rehabilitative services for children. So I got to enjoy my ice cream and help the community too!

Well.....real small, crowded, loud, sticky floors and tables. Only 4 - 6 tables. When people are at the counter for ice cream, very hard to get in to store.

I love that they have a little table next to the window where you can people... More

Serendipity Ice Cream is absolutely charming inside. I love this little restored corner of McMinnville. I meet friends here once a month for ice cream and conversation. Their selection of ice cream is great, and includes choices for those watching their weight and for those who have to be careful with certain food intolerances. I have only had ice cream... More

We were just walking by and decided to try their ice cream. Loved it - very creamy and the flavor was delicious!!! I had the carmel ice cream and have been dreaming about it ever since. I'm lactose intolerant but I would still bear the pain to have another cone of that ice cream.

Haha - I think it's the only ice cream place in town. It's a wonderful little shop that has lots of character so definintely plan to eat the ice cream in the shop. The ice cream is good - it'll do.

My sons love coming here for ice cream and cookies. The smell is so great and food is yummy. This is always a great treat to have and sit outside or while walking down street. Fast service and clean bathrooms.

Originally an old hotel and like the rest of the town, the ambiance was maintained. Good choice of ice cream; servings could have been a bit bigger.
