Staff and service are great. We just had ice cream which was good and reasonably priced but other things are available and looked good. It’s conveniently located and there are nice shops nearby.

We stopped here on a whim during a quick trip to Pagosa Springs. Not much to look at inside. You order at the counter, and they call your name when ready. The food was good, but nothing special. Lots of people were ordering shakes, which...More

The Malt Shoppe was recommended by another tourist, for the "best" soft serve ice cream cone. She mentioned how tall it was. We stopped by last week. In our home town, we enjoy the soft serve ice-cream cones at McDonalds, we were anxious to check...More

The servings of ice cream are huge! One definitely gets his money’s worth. The small size serving of the soft serve ice cream was the largest I’ve seen! I had an Avalanche, which is soft serve ice cream with candies or cookies crushed and mixed...More

Food is low quality, place is not that clean. Would suggest you go somewhere else. If you really want ice cream, just go to the super market and buy a gallon, its a better use of your hard earned money

My family thought the burgers were great. I was disappointed that there were no black bean or veggie burger options. No salads either.
