“The real thing...”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

If you're in Idaho City and you bump into Sarsaparilla's, it was no accident. You can't find an old-timey ice cream parlor like this anywhere else that I know of. I know it's already been listed, but the huckleberry ice cream is unbelievable. Though I've been there half a dozen times, I don't think I've ever tried another flavor and don't see any reason to. I'd just end up getting a couple scoops of the huckleberry anyway and curse the first 400 delicious calories as well as space in my belly that could have been completely taken up with huckleberry ice cream.

“Ice cream!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Het they put a jelly bean in the bottome of the cone before they fill it with yummy goodness! Try the Huckleberry or go for the gold pan special!

“Perfect Spot For Something Cool”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

I was surprised at how many flavors of ice cream they had. Several kinds of candy if you're not into ice cream. It was very good and I would go back next time I'm in Idaho City.

“Old fashioned treat!”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

We were passing through Idaho City on a family trip that took us through Idaho-Oregon-Washington. We were staying in a nearby yurt for a night and ventured into town for food and browsing of the historical attractions. We thoroughly enjoyed the cool treat of a hand-dipped icecream cone on a hot day in the Ice Cream Parlor. Everyone else must have too - the place was packed and buzzing with activity! Worth the stop!
