The flavors are fabulous and variety is seasonal and great. Too bad they only take cash. The location is good but parking is very limited for the Main Street is quite busy.

Once tasted, always wanted. Our favorite ice cream parlor in Alhambra. I try different flavor on every visit and so far I liked them all.

The blueberry flavored ice cream was great. My favorite was the chocolate covered strawberry. If you get a sundae, make sure you're really hungry or be ready to share it with at least two more people.

The ice cream is good but not the greatest I've tried. This is a very popular neighborhood hang out, it's so popular that they stay open until 11pm during the summer. A fun place to hang out and enjoy some dessert.

If you live in the area, you must know about Fosselman's. If you are ice cream lovers like me, you will go to Fosselman's. When you walk in the store, it's like traveling back in time. Besides ice cream, they sell candies and cards too. The store has been in business for almost 100 years, all homemade ice cream. They... More

Their ice is so good, other ice cream shops in Southern California buy from them and sell it in their shops.

Yes this is the original Fosselmans sold in restaurants and grocery stores. Their Dark chocolate rocks and wins awards all the time.

If you're out here for the Rose bowl and smart enough to not stay in an overprice Pasadena hotel, Alhambra is a good close spot to choose. Plus the Asian restaurant selections are better and less crowded. Fosselman's is a great place in the summer for some good ice cream... I like the classic Dutch chocolate but they also have... More
