Step back in time when you enter this gorgeously appointed ice cream parlor. It makes going out for icecream an actual experience in and of itself. One of the gems of this town's award-winning 3rd Street. Best item on the menu? Scrumptious homemade cookies!

Great small ice cream shop. Even had a couple sugar free choices. I was with a number of ice cream obsessed guests and they went back multiple times.

Came here after a visit to the Aviation Museum - about a ten minute drive. This is a lovely old-fashioned café on McMinnville's main street, with period tables inside and suitable old furniture. When we were there they had a nickelodeon piano playing beside our...More
