The owner of this place needs a lesson in how to treat people. My family and I witnessed this guy forcibly trying to get a young girl out of his store because she had an elephant ear which is not allowed. Fine.....those are not allowed, thats fine its your store. But nothing gives you the right to talk to a... More

The incident has been mis-reported. I spoke with the Mom, NOT the child, and she became belligerent, refused to leave, made excuses, etc. Finally she left in a huff, yelling. The situation escalated beyond where it should have - this is true - but at no time did I speak to the child. She had ample opportunity to follow the... More

I had ice cream here twice. Excellent home made ice cream! The second night we stopped by I commented that their waffle cones were very good and better than I had at the Tillamook Factory. I was informed that the owner makes them himself every day. If you like ice cream and you are in Seaside you should definitely go... More

Don't come here on a diet! The ice cream is beyond good and you can watch while they make the fresh waffle cones.

A friend insisted that they had the best ice cream around. By the time we got there after dinner, two flavors were sold out. I asked for samples of two flavors I had never had, and the girl behind the counter wasn't that nice about it. With the second one she actually rolled her eyes at me. I know they're... More

What can I say? Excellent Ice cream! Only drawback is they take cash only. Since you're paying for home made ice cream, be sure to bring enough cash with you to cover the cost.

My husband and I wanted ice cream and we stopped here. We ate it all but it wasn't Super Yummy. It was ice cream and we were satisfied. After reading the owner's reply to Zoe's review (Stingy and Greedy) we've concluded Zoe is correct and truthful. No where in the owner's reply does he answer Zoe's question / comment about... More

We sent three messages to 1Heather1 to get more information - we wanted to know about her specific experience, and why specifically she, “concluded Zoe is correct and truthful” (in an earlier post about sampling). Like Zoe, she never responded to us. All I can state again is that (a) we do not have a “One Sample Only” policy and... More

Really, really good! We had to visit 3 times because it was overcrowded the first time (that speaks well!), then we found out it was only open Thurs-Sun, but in the end got our icecream and it was worth the wait!

Nope Mr. Mzinger, we're not confused or mistaken. April 2014 scenario. Young man (likely late teens) gave me one sample. I told him he could help others since I was still looking at all the great flavors. An older woman (your wife?) made her presence known by standing right next to the young man. She asked if I wanted a... More

Nope, nope, and nope. "Older woman" is not my wife but an employee (and how do you know how old I am to make that distinction? Hmmmm....). She has been with us for TEN YEARS. She gives samples to people who have ALREADY ORDERED. NO WAY does she (or anyone else here) cut people off at ONE SAMPLE (we have... More

This ice cream was so good! Try the oreo cookie flavor! I will comeback to this place again whenever I am in Seaside. FYI, they take cash only.
