This place has been around nearly a century and still does good if unexceptional ice cream. Nice family atmosphere and a good variety of flavors. Liked the butter pecan and Cookie Monster

Cash only place, but there's a Wells Fargo literally next door. Selection is great, ice cream is really good and flavorful. But it's not extraordinary, as some would have you think.

This place has been here for many years. Me and a friend usually come here to have a two scoop sundae. Several choices of syrups, whipped cream, nuts and a cherry on top. Many flavors of their gourmet ice cream and also a wide assortment of candies. If you are a local or a visitor, you will want to experience... More

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.
