Wonderful selection of flavors some quite different than the usual ones. I been many times and always enjoyed it. Sometimes there is a line out the front door but it moves fast. I had a scoop of half Butter Brickle and half peanut butter cup, chocolate swirl in a waffle cone (worth the extra charge!). Ask for a free taste sample if are not sure about any of the flavors.

This place has some great ice cream and great family environment. My family is lucky to live minutes away from here. It seems ice cream parlors are vanishing but this one is great fun with quality ice cream.

Of course, the ice cream is fantastic. The flavors are innovative and delicious. From the point of view of a local, truly the second best part is that the owner is so community minded. A portion of profits go to local charities. The place is lively, friendly, and a focal point of the village of Arroyo Grande. Children are entertained by the choo-choo train going around the ceiling, a cartoon film in the back room, and watching through a window as the employees make ice cream. Try my favorite flavor. The raspberry merlot with bits of dark chocolate in it. I keep coming back to it.

Just a home made ice cream parlor. Great ice cream, great place for the kids. I don't know what else to add.

Grabbed dinner just a few doors down from Doc's and made sure to leave room for dessert. Super friendly staff and fantastic ice cream!
