Perfect place to finish our evening... Enjoyed a large raspberry with chocolate. Sat outside and listened to music in the very lively area. We ended up parking in the Raley's parking lot after we did some shopping. The girl who made our ice cream was nice.

For ice cream near the tram, try the Cold Stone Creamery. Many flavors, great staff, and even better location. On a sunny day, what better to do than ice cream and watch the tourists near the tram area.

There is always a line at this place. When we went in there, it was hot outside but they kept the door open because the line was out the door. There was one girl that was working her butt off and the others were doing something else. It's Coldstone so you can't go wrong with the ice cream, but they... More

I sincerely apologize for the wait you had. I have, once again, spoken with the manager and staff about stepping onto the stone with the line reaches a certain point. Once again, I apologize and hope that the rest of your trip was enjoyable. More

My wife and I stopped in for some ice cream and we couldn't believe the line until we got to see (and hear) what was going on inside the shop. The crew was singing and flinging ice cream around with such great attitudes, it was very entertaining. We overheard a few people jump in line after looking into the shop... More

I love Cold Stone Creamery and this store was no different. The ice cream is always so tasty and the servers are very friendly. I wish I could eat ice cream everyday! If you are visiting S. Lake Tahoe, you should definitely make a stop at this Cold Stone.
