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). They also have a baby scoop (perfect size for a toddler) for a $1 if you ask. They were generous with samples as well. They sell... More

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!

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. The price is high for ice cream even higher for shakes, they did not know what a 'malt' was. The ice cream is pretty good. The service is not good. I... More

I just tried the salted caramel ice cream here and it is to-die-for. The service is friendly, and the atmosphere is quaint. It looks to be a popular place because there are always a lot of people inside tasting the interesting ice cream flavors. 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
