It's hard to not stop in on a hot summer day! The boys make sure to remind us when we are close by. Great cones and other deserts too!

This little malt shop may not look like much, but I can’t remember when I’ve had a better shake. They offer a menu of burgers as well, but my daughter and I had decided to drink our calories that day!

This is a must stop every trip to Pagosa Springs. The large ice cream cone is giant, not sure how it doesn't fall over! The shakes are tasty and reminiscent of an old ice cream shop. Never have had the food, just great ice cream....More

We went here for lunch while shopping in Pagosa. The hamburgers were big, hot and good. The french fries the same. The chocolate shakes were not the best I've had, but OK. The service was good and the workers friendly. My only shock was the...More

We had some wonderful treats at the Malt Shoppe while we were visiting Pagosa Springs! They serve up American fare and some pretty amazing ice cream in an old-fashioned way. We found the staff to be hardworking and the turn around fast. We'd recommend anyone...More

The food was decent, served fresh and hot. The milkshakes were tasty. The prices are way too high though. I can’t say I thought the price was worth it and we won’t be going back again.
