We loved this spot! They serve Blue Bunny ice creams and have several different sundae options. Super friendly people and several places to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful views of the lake across the street.

This place sticks to ice cream and ice cream based treats, and is a great place to get a scoop or two on a hot day!

We walked across the street for dessert and we decided to get the milkshake. They are delicious and enough for two servings! My sons got the two scoops and enjoyed them! They are a little pricey but worth it!

Very good ice cream in a great location. Did we NEED ice cream? Yup. Don't judge. Lots of flavors and Lake Tahoe is right there.

A daily visit to cable car ice cream adds to a great stay in Tahoe Vista. Good treats, reasonable prices, great memories, you are never too old for ice cream.
