The variety was limited but very good. The coconut ice cream was wonderful. All natural flavors including Honey Lavender and Green Tea. The fresh waffle cones and bowls were a good compliment.

1 scoop or more! Waffle cones for kids adults and a cup is in store! They make them at the counter, no talkin' down to'er. Tastes like lavender, for citizens and travelers. Coffee and coconut milk, wow no lactose to make my stomach hurt! Free water!

Trying to get over the DISAPPOINTMENT of no hot fudge sundae; I ordered a scoop of chocolate instead and was very pleased with the taste. I think my husband got vanilla and enjoyed as well. I would NOT return due... More

Excellent ice cream! The ice cream here is as good as highly touted spots such as Bandon or Fort Bragg. The staff is friendly and helpful. You can sample their selections.

We went here for dessert after dinner. Unlike other's experience we only had a short wait to order and there was plenty of space inside to sit down and eat. My biggest disappointment was that there were no fruit flavors to choose from. I got the cinnamon ice cream which was a strong flavor, but I enjoyed it. The grasshopper... More

I love that I could order a kids scoop, perfect, hit the spot without being too much. Flavors were good, nothing unusual, but organic and fresh tasting.

This is a great little ice cream shop in Arcata. They have unique seating, t-shirts, homemade waffle cones, and delicious ice cream. I loved the Honey Lavender Vanilla! I am definitely buying a pint to take home next time!

Wife had vanilla-honey-lavender and chocolate chip in a bowl. The vanilla-honey-lavender was the best tasting ice cream my wife has ever had! I got Chocolate Orange Chip [I think] in a cone, but because I can't taste very much anymore, these flavors were wasted on me. AHHHGGGGGGG!! Not able to taste ice cream is a real...you supply the words.
