Great tasting ice creams. Many different choices. Try Coffee Coffee. Surprisingly, they are less expensive that most chain places around.
Second option is to splurge on fast food hot dogs, hamburgers and fries.

In the old days, this was wonderful ice cream. Now it is made by ceder crest company and is totally AVERAGE. Save yourself a trip- buy Ben and Jerry's from your local Jewel or Dominick's.
Besides tasting only average, one of the ingredients in Homer's ice cream is HYDROGENATED OIL, one of the most harmful foods on the planet. I have read the labels of ALL the ice creams at the Jewel, and NOONE uses hydrogenated oil in ice cream.

GRRRRRRRRRRRRR. I will never again eat Homer's ice cream.

Homer's has been making ice cream since 1935 and is still making it from scratch and on premise. It has been family owned for I believe 3 generations now.They use only the freshest ingredients and pay attention to detail and tradition. Go and try it for yourself. You will not be disappointed. Their seasonal flavors ROCK!!!!

Pros: Homemade Ice Cream

Cons: there are none

i'v always loved this place but the ice cream has gone down hill. I asked an employee why? "it's because we do not make it ourselves anymore, it's all produced by Ceder Crest"

This place is a fun blast from the past. The ice cream is wonderful. And yes, be ready for kids having post-soccer season treats.

I was disappointed after all the hype I?d heard about Homers. I thought it was good, but not amazing ice cream. It is an old fashioned ice cream parlor, but I wasn?t overly impressed by the product itself. Granted, I really like ice cream and have tried similar places all over the country, but I wouldn?t rate it above average. Buy some Ben and Jerry?s and stay at home ? and when you?re in Oakland CA go to Fentons and see how good Homers could be in a different life.

PROS: close by, and has free parking
CONS: the ice cream doesn't live up to the hype

this place has the best tasting ice cream around. we stopped in on our way home one time. in the phone book it said that they were rated finest peach ice cream so i decided to have that. i can't even explain to you how great it was because it was that good. i have never had peach ice cream before so i was in heaven. my husband had a fresh fruit sorbets which i tasted and it was so fresh. the best thing is that if i ever have a craving for it and can't drive there, because it is way out of my way, they ship nationwide. thank god for that.

PROS: gold medal winner
CONS: kind of far

This is THE quintessential ice cream parlor. It has been a main stay for over 75 years at the same location.
The Ice Cream is still made the old fashioned way, right on the premises. They don't mask inferior ice cream with gobs of candy and crap, like all these new ice cream spots like Cold Stone. It is just REALLY good ice cream, done the right way.

Although the ambience is not the best, and you had better like screaming children, the ice cream is the best in the world. It is made right on the premesis with the best of ingredients. In the summer, the Fresh Peach is to die for! It is well worth the trip.
