Serendipity ice cream is a wonderful part of downtown 3rd Street. Delicious Tillamook ice cream and fresh-made cones in a cute ice cream parlor reminiscent of the turn of the 20th century. Many varieties of treats and great service.

Great tasting hard packed ice cream with a large variety of flavors. The service is also great. Parking along the street and behind the building across the street makes it easy to get in and out. Love to visit when I can.

Best Chocolate Ice Cream I've had in a long time! My husband had the Vanilla and he said that was also excellent.

Great selection of flavors and funny salespeople, at least the people who helped us. My only regret is that I didn't come back and buy an ice cream cookie. They looked so good!

Not kidding, the cost for a kids cup or cone is up to 1/3 the price I have paid at other places. Super amazing historical atmosphere!

Serendipity Ice Cream may be small. But, it has the greatest Atmosphere. You can even get to the tunnel under McMinnville. It is awesome to go thru.

It's ice cream! It's yummy and the employees are always happy to let you have a sample. It may be small inside, but definitely worth going back.
