Such a cute, Humboldt experience. The ice cream is delicious, and the restaurant is so cute and decorated in a very clever manner. It's nice to grab some ice cream and just walk around Arcata

This is a Must Stop business if you're visiting Arcata. Darling, delish & so homey. A true representation of the little burg of Arcata. Locally owned & made w/ local ingredients. The giant swing w/ carousel-like horses is a delight for kids.

Took my kids here for an afternoon treat. We were very happy with all the flavors we got and they had a choice of about 12 different ice creams. The decor inside was very nice including a swinging table/chair combo. Very fun for little kids....More

This place is awesome and whimsical! Perfect for little ones with a giant bunny ride (75 cents a ride), a wooden cash register with little wooden ice creams & a wonderful unique rocking table & benches. I wish I would've taken a picture but go...More
