This place looked great from the outside, so we stopped on our way back to Taos from the Ski Resort. We were so pleasantly surprised. Not only ice cream, but great lunch foods were available in a relaxed atmosphere. I had to try the Pinon Carmel, since everywhere in New Mexico we saw Pinon sold on the side of the... More

Stop in at this funky and charming shop for ice cream and a sandwich, especially the ice cream. Then walk around the village of Arroyo Seco. Seco is small town New Mexico charm at its best.

Stopped in here by chance while touring around Taos and were pleasantly surprised. There is a great selection of sandwiches. I had the portobello mushroom sandwich and it was delicious. My wife had a salad which was very good. Very friendly staff.

Had the coffee with a scoop of their ice cream dropped in it .. very good! Coffee shop feel. They do serve some food too. In a non-town .. so small it's not a town along the Taos Loop. Some interesting ice cream flavors too .. mexican chocolate, lavender.

I love ice cream, it's my favorite food group. I'm not sure what people didn't love about their ice cream, but I thought it was delicious. The town itself is small, but it has some funky shops and the owners were a lot of fun to talk to.

Thank Julie M
