Stopped after lunch for a cone. Not cheap, but decent value for the serving. Had Eggnog and Salted caramel in a waffle cone. Would visit again.

Established in 1946 this quality spot remains the same with chocolates and ice cream to please everyone. Quaint spot and good service and what make this business a success. All holidays which require chocolate are available here. One of the oldest established places in Burlingame. A town treasure

This place has been here forever and is as good as the day we first went through the door.

Cute little ice cream shop. From all the other previous reviews I was expecting a much better Ice cream. Certainly not the best I have ever had and didn't taste homemade. It was pretty basic. Nothing special. I had the mint chip. Not sure if I would return.

This is mainly a candy and ice cream store with no seats inside. Outside there are two benches if you want to sit down to eat. The ice cream is really delicious. They have a pretty large selection of flavors. They also have some interesting candy options such as chocolate covered twinkies. The calories abound in the shop but you... More

Good old fashioned ice cream shop with delicious ice cream. Well worth the calories. My wife had the best coffee ice cream of her life
