I Loved the ice cream here. I was surprised they had my favorite macadamia nut ice cream. Hard to find in California. They make their own waffle cone and thats what draws you to this place. You can smell it in a distance.

Hot day in Solvang, so we were looking to cool off when we came upon the Solvang Trolley Ice Cream Parlor. Very good ice cream and a very nice person behind the counter. Very refreshing stop.

You walk in and the room smells like freshly made waffle cones. The lady behind the counter was the sweetest smilingest person you'll meet. The cashier man has a handlebar mustache. We ordered whiskey ice cream. Definitely worth a visit.

Nice little place hidden in a corner. Only two people working the shop on my visit and busting their backsides, but smiles on their faces and very friendly. Try the Whiskey and Pecan Praline ice cream!

I ordered a hazelnut latte. The server put a small scoop of hazelnut gelato in to add the flavor since he doesn't have syrups which are full of chemicals and sugar. Might be one of the best latte's I've ever had.

After a great dinner and brew at Solvang Brewing Company it was time to walk off our dinner and head over to Solvang Trolley Ice Cream Parlor for a little dessert. We each enjoyed an ice cream and some fudge for later. The quality of the treats was first class as was the sweet young girl serving the goodies. I... More

Really good ice cream with three size options or go for the ice cream shake or malt. The mint chocolate was delicious and the service was fast and friendly.
