I got the cake shake and my boyfriend got the key lime pie. Both a small shake. And boy I tell you, small is laaarge. We could barely finish our shakes, it was thick, unctuous, rich, filling, yummy, and oh so decadent. Plus they have retro candy and a retro candy timeline poster. We stood there like happy fools drinking our shakes and looking at that poster for minutes. A must go in downtown PS.

Great Shakes treated us to the best shake I've ever had. Great presentation and really tasty little glazed donut on the fat straw adds a cool touch. This place has only been around 1 year, hope everyone keeps it busy so it's still around for many years.

If you are taking a walk through town stop and have a great shake. There are so many flavors to choose from that it take a while to make a decision. They are rich so sharing one isn't a bad idea. We had our grandkids with us and they loved this treat.

On our way out of town my fiancee and I stopped here to grab a shake to go. We decided to split one because neither of us was super hungry- big mistake! The shake was so good (we got the oreo one) that we were fighting over who got to eat more of it. We will definitely be returning there to get our own shakes the next time we're in Palm Springs!
