Wonderful flavors and HUGE servings of ice cream in a cone or cup! The servers are friendly and the outside seating is a fantastic view of Lake Tahoe across the street!

we stopped here for ice cream one day in Tahoe and we really enjoyed it. The waffle cones were amazing and the ice cream was great, we really loved the mocha almond crunch (I think that's the name anyway). The only thing is that there's not a huge selection of flavours but that's to be expected in such a tiny little ice cream shop which is very cute and rustic.

Hot summer day, first stop after a day of kayaking and the beach would be ICE CREAM!! We chose this place cause everytime we drove by there is always a line. We decided to order milk shakes instead. We were given our milk shakes with out straws so I searched around thinking straws were somewhere and it was self service. At quick glances I didn't find the straws and ask for them and the clerk said, sorry we don't have any straws. We ran out! WTH!! I gave her the, "well it would have been nice if you told me BEFORE I ordered 2 milk shakes. How are we to drink it." Her response was just to slurp it down! This review would have gotten more points but...shake wasn't good enough and definitely upsetting trying to slurp ice cream. I kick myself for not going back and demanding my money back or at least have them give me cones instead. Now...realizing that this is the only ice cream place around for miles explains why there are long lines during the hot summer heat. Hopefully they get Smart enough and learn to stock up on straws or learn to be honest and forward people if they order shakes and there are no straws!

The staff here is very friendly, they serve good ice creams, milk shakes, etc. There are a few tables with umbrellas so you can stay there to drink your Coke or eat your ice cream...

We love to stop here and get a scoop of ice cream on a waffle cone after a visit to the beach. Warning: they do run out of ice cream flavors and waffle cones. We had our heart set on mint chocolate chip on a waffle cone but they were all out on the day of our visit. However all their ice cream flavors are good.
