Yummy

Adorable ice cream shop in downtown McMinnville. I had a scoop of chocolate hazelnut toffee. Best ice cream I have ever had. My daughter had a double scoop of chocolate in a homemade waffle cone and loved it!

This is by far the best icecream you can get. The amount of flavours they have is huge, although not every flavor is available at all times. I'd definitely recommend the handmade wafflecones. Whenever we go there I take those. They are really yummi and add to the experience. The staff is great. They will give you a taste of... More

Small, Interesting ice cream shop that offers great soups, chilis, etc. on the side. Been there for lunch a couple times and ice cream once- had the gummy bear ice cream (really! it was darn good). Great for kids and just hanging out with a friend.

Fair assortment of ice cream flavors, appreciated the nondairy options. There is a player piano in a corner. The space is small and cozy. The regular scoops are very generous in size (2 scoops).

Stopped in after dinner to have ice cream. We found the place to be ok. It has a bit of an old time feel - the automatic piano playing a big part in this. They have an ok selection of ice cream but we were expecting a higher quality of ice cream. Maybe it was the flavours we picked.

Stopped in for two ice c ream cones while strolling the shops on downtown Third Street. The staff seemed to enjoy their jobs and chatted with us about local lore while scooping us our tasty treats.

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!
