Tucker's makes what they sell. And they have been a consistent supporter of the community over the years. Eat local and support Alameda. And as a bonus, you get to have fantastic ice cream.

Thanks for adding the info about parking, Diwata -- that will really help some customers out! Many people don't realize that parking in the garage is half the price of parking on the street. And it sounds like you and your husband both have great favorites. See you for more ice cream soon! Best, Kate, Owner More

Anyone who lives in and near Alameda knows that Tucker's has the very best Ice Cream! If you haven't tried Tucker's, you should put it on your to do list. My favorite is Butter Pecan and my husbands favorite is Mint Chocolate Chip.

Those are some excellent favorites, Kim! And ice cream is so much better than most things that go on the to-to list, so that's a great suggestion. Hope to see you and your husband for some Butter Pecan and Mint Chocolate Chip soon! Best, Kate, Owner More

We visit the area every summer and Tucker's is a must. They have the creamiest most delicious flavors in Alameda and most likely the whole Bay Area. We usually get a single cone because the serving is so big. I am a chocoholic and love the mocha almond chocolate fudge. The pralines and cream is also a favorite.

We have going to Tucker's for about 21 years and we have always been treated great. I love the extra flavors that they prepare for each season. They never get old.

Tucker's is a great little ice cream parlor right in the heart of Alameda. If you need a bit of cooling off from the hectic grind of the city, it's great to come to a place like Tucker's where you get a good dose of nostalgia on a fresh waffle cone, served to you with a friendly smile.

Tuckers is a Great Old Fashioned Ice Cream Store. The quality and the presentation are plain and perfect at the same time.

Between our unique flavors and quality ingredients, we think our ice cream is worth every penny, and it's a shame if you don't agree. I hope you can find something on our menu that you'll love soon! -Kate, Owner More

Good ice cream, generous servIng. Chocolate fascination (?) is our favorite.... This place is always a hit - for both young and old... We usually dine at nearby Burma superstar or Tomatina - then walk to Tucker's for ice cream dessert. A couple can share a scoop if you are on calorie watch :-)
