Fun selection of old tyme icecreams

The ambiance leaves a little to be desired, but it's always clean in here and the staff is unfailingly friendly. The flavors up for grab include regular standbys and interesting combinations which are unusual but still very very appealing.

They have many and varied flavors of Blue Bunny ice cream. The folks are friendly and serve ample portions at reasonable prices. This ice cream store needs a refresh and a good cleaning. It is still a nice place to get a cool dessert.

The location is easy to find and they do have indoor and outdoor seating… Unfortunately the service was not very friendly… They did have quite a few options for ice cream… The place could use some cleaning up... Overall it's an OK place to stop and get a scoop of ice cream… There aren't a lot of other options in... More

Stopped in for a late lunch / early dinner on our Big 2015 Road Trip. After cruising through Carlsbad, the happy colors of Kaliedoscoops seemed like a good option for the family. The food menu seems limited to hot dogs, but they are well-prepared. The impressive variety of ice cream made for a satisfying dessert.

We took the kids hoping for a retro style parlor experience. Notsomuch. The ice cream is nothing special (Blue Bunny...sold down the street at the Wal Mart) although they did have a good selection of flavors. The lady behind the counter seemed completely overwhelmed with our orders of scoops in cups. We ordered regular sizes. They were tiny. Wouldn't necessarily... More

Went here with the kiddos after a sunny day on the Pecos River. While they had a very large selection of ice creams, and their burgers looked amazing, the whole place needed a good cleaning. There was also a funky smell that was quite foul. The kids and I ate our ice creams in the heat rather than be in... More

This was a great place to go after a day at the caverns and dinner at Chili's. The ladies working behind the counter were friendly and fast. The Ice Cream was great. It was clean here too. The menu lists breakfast items too. It looks like they open at 6am. Nice place.

They have a huge selection of ice cream flavors. You can go through the drive through, dine inside or outside.
