Wow! What a gem as you travel through the outskirts of Eastern Oregon. Just when you reach your limit of zero stimulation in endless miles of road and drought, the Skinners located a pot of gold in the form of the best coffee, ice cream, goat milk skin products, books and cards, and well-styled restrooms in Jordan Valley, Oregon on Hwy. 95. It is a minor version of Walls Drug in Rapid City, South Dakota, and it is my kind of place. My heartrate starts rising when we pass thru Parma at one side, and Winnemucca, on the other. The respite is what it takes to make the road trip enjoyable. Actually, the scenery and its desolate beauty is in the eye of this beholder.

This is a Coffee and Ice Cream Stop. 2 hours out of anywhere this stop is what my family longs for when we go to California. Best cup of coffee in the desert. Good espresso and thick rich ice cream shakes. Clean restrooms are a plus and a shady patio out front has been a nice addition.
The huckleberry ice cream is to die for. Cindy will whip up any drink or ice cream treat you can think of. The little place has nice gifts and lots of local history. I understand Cinnamon Rolls are good as well.
