Fentons Creamery in Piedmont, Oakland California


I love a good ice cream place.


Ice Cream at Fentons Creamery in the Piedmont neighborhood in OaklandI even love a bad ice cream place – if there even is such a thing?


Somehow you can always tell a really good ice cream place – the line out the door is one good indicator. And of course locals can always tell you THE ice cream place to check out.


And offering creative flavors other than the typical vanilla and chocolate is, in my mind, the mark of a good ice cream place.


Ice Cream at Fentons Creamery in the Piedmont neighborhood in OaklandFentons Creamery is in the heart of the Piedmont neighborhood in Oakland California where it has been since 1961 (with a second location in Vacaville), and well worth a visit…any time of the day. Who says ice cream is just for desert after dinner?


Fentons Creamery is a winning combination of great tasting cream, terrific friendly service, family history, and the feel of a successful business that was originally established over 100 years ago, and knows how to do ice cream well.


There is both indoor and outdoor dining (with table service) as well as some benches for those who want to take out. Not only do you get great ice cream but they serve grilled sandwiches, salads, burgers and other delights as well.


But let’s not forget it’s all about the ice cream at Fentons Creamery. Check it out – I did yesterday. The toasted almond caramel or whatever it was called was stellar!

Hi Jeff, I call always tell when you are traveling, LOL. You always find the best places in your journeys. I surely wish I had been blogging back when I was traveling all the time. We get to see some great places and meet some wonderful people along the way.

We don't have Fenton's here in Texas but we do have Braums and Cold Stone.  Ice cream is one of my habit habits because I can eat it all the time.  Yummy!
