“Decent for being the only option”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

After dinner, we headed into downtown where we found this ice cream shop and I was able to get my usual Vanilla soft serve with Sprinkles. It is a small, quite shop but has a good array of choices and as the only option was pretty decent.

“Just a place to get ice cream”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

This place does not do anything special, it is walk up and get your cone of ice cream/frozen yogurt, Basic. Very small, which is crowded with 5 people in it. If you need your cold fix it does the job.

“Marginal and very expensive ice cream”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Just visited Calistoga and do not understand the high reviews of this place. We decided on Scoops and Swirls instead of Baskin Robbins because it was a local ice cream business. What a disappointment. The selection of flavors was very limited. When I looked at the tub of chocolate peanut butter it had ice crusts on top of it. It looked terrible. My friend and I each got one scoop of ice cream and it cost $9!

I have had amazing ice cream at local parlors before but this just tasted like grocery store brand stale ice cream for a huge price.

“Perfect for a hot afternoon!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Definitely a tiny spot and it was packed when we visited...being that it was 104 degrees that day makes sense.
Nice flavors and plenty of options between soft serve, ice cream, milkshakes, toppings, etc.
