Ice Cream Alley really is in an alley. They offer delicious ice cream, with a choice of cone type or cup and huge portions. A must visit in McCall during the summer. They are generally open Memorial Day until Labor Day, closed in the winter.

You haven't experienced summer in McCall until you've stood in line for mountain sized scoops at Ice Cream Alley! Only open for a limited number of weeks in the summer. The Huckleberry ice cream is amazing!

This McCall gem serves the best ice cream ever! You may have to wait in line a bit but it's worth the wait. As an adult, I get the child's cup because the portions are huge. Enjoy the ice cream with your entire family and if you are in line, meet your neighbors! You will be surprised how many new... More

Very busy, secluded popular place. Huge variety in ice cream, good quality and service, but can be long lines in peak of Summer. Highly recommended.

Every visit to McCall has to have at least one stop at Ice Cream Alley. Butterscotch for me in a bowl. Thank You.

Came to McCall to camp for Labor Day weekend. Family members were raving over this place. So we thought we would give it a try. Not overly impressive. I will agree the portions are large but so is the price. And it seems all ordered in. I don't think anything is made there. One thing that was huge was the... More

Love this little shack. 😊 🍦🍦🍦 Once you go through this crazy little rock strewn alley, and hopefully you don't trip on the old creaky wooden dilapidated stairs to their old dilapidated deck, you will arrive at the ice cream shack. There you will order the freshest, yummiest ice cream EVER! I ordered only one scoop for me on a... More

We had been holding out all day and finally had to visit the Ice Cream Alley, the line was out to the fence but it moves pretty steadily and within 15 minutes we were devouring our HUGE ice cream treats! The kid size waffle cone single scoop will blow your mind on size..... A grown adult will have a hard... More

During summer months, do not leave McCall, Idaho without at least one stop to Ice Cream Alley!! And if you are older, or just finished lunch or dinner, order the kid's size. More than enough. Great selections; great prices. And, although you should anticipate a line, they serve fast.
