They have a full menu of ice cream cones and shakes. The old fashioned equipment and the tasty ice cream were delightful.

Home made ice cream. Thick old fashioned milk shakes, lots of flavors. Hugh sundaes. Great sodas made the old time way. If you like everything ice cream you'll love this place. Truckee is close to Tahoe. It's worth a stop.

Average ice cream, tacky atmosphere. Not bad ( a bit dirty at the end of the day), but more 'meh' than anything.

My family stopped in on Saturday, Jan. 18, and enjoyed the "old-fashioned" ice cream parlor experience. There is a counter with stools and all the traditional sundaes, shakes, and cones. The young lady scooping ice cream was willing to make order modifications and was very friendly. It is a family operated business (don't know if they own it). The decor is dated and the place could use some sprucing up, but it's fun to go there any time.
