Best Ice Cream in Oakland! They have lots of flavours to choose from and it’s all house-made. Take-pout or eat-in. They have a full diner menu of things like hot dogs but it’s really about the ice cream. The sundaes are size of a house.

If you like standing in line for an hour looking like a smug jerk with a great college education and zero street smarts this is the place for you. It's a kooky spin-off of a fifties diner and you can pay six bucks for an ice cream cone and suck in all the false nostalgia of yesteryear. I hope you spill your icecream all over the interior of your heinous BMW.

When I was six years old, our house was around the corner from Fentons in Oakland. It has remained the number one place for ice cream for my family over decades. No one does ice cream sundaes like Fentons. It was the only place that my husband (a banana split man) could not eat his way through a banana split.

This ice cream is homemade and the servings are LARGE...they have many unique flavors. Only downside is parking is limited.

had an excellent experience that i decided to hunt down the branch in chennai. i was so surprised to arrive there with a plethora of anxious diners waiting to get a table! my friend and i tried to work our way into getting a table by telling that we drove for an hour (which was true!) and that we're foreigners and leaving soon (which was true for me). the lady considered this and gave us a table after about 30mins of waiting.

the grills are great, and i got so full that i never made it to the buffet table. service is ok, we get asked to replenish the grill often that we had to decline after a while.

tip: make sure to book a table!! it's a pain to do a walk-in, they'd even close it at some point.
