“Fine place to Ice Cream yourself”
Reviewed 11 April 2013

Locally owed and operated by a husband and wife team, not a chain operation. Features Dreyer brand, has 32 flavors in one small shop; cups or 5 kinds of cones + toppings + shakes made to order, and more. Not a restaurant, don't expect meals. Around the corner from Pomeroy street, thus cheaper rent and not as easily found, but better and cheaper than the completion and not the gooey gelato found nearby.

“Serving Dreyer's Ice cream - better off going to the grocery store”
Reviewed 12 March 2013

I'm not sure what the appeal is. This place serves Dreyers/Breyers ice cream - ya know, the stuff that's in your grocery store's frozen food isle for way cheaper?

It's not homemade and they don't offer any unique flavors or anything. It will cure the craving for ice cream if you're having one, but don't expect some super great stuff. $4 for one scoop in a cone. Better off going to the grocery store.

Now takes credit cards if your purchase is over $5.

“Good ice cream treats in Pismo”
Reviewed 17 June 2012

Visited this ice cream parlor while at the Pismo Beach car show. Very friendly owner and staff. Quite a few flavors to choose from. They even asked if you wanted a little or a lot of hot fudge on your sundae.. No tables, but just a few patio chairs outside to sit. Will not hesitate to go back here when in the area.
