Going to Daffodil Hill, Volcano & maybe Dandelion Days in Jackson--Munnerlyn's Ice Creamery Report w/ Pics
- hhc Mar 12, 2013 10:41 PM
From the SF Bay Area we will be doing a road trip stopping at Indian Grinding Rock SHP, then to see Daffodil Hill out in Volcano. There is also Dandelion Days 3/15-16 in Historic Downtown Jackson.
Any places to eat in Volcano or Jackson for lunch? If not, we can pack our lunch in the car.
Right, I should talk, that ice cream sampler was my dinner!
And now looking at the flavor board photo again, I see that tamales are listed in the bottom right corner. So maybe it is possible to nosh on something else too.
Still hoping someone can give us an update on Union Pub in Volcano.
Speaking of local food fests in Northern California it is time to start thinking about the Punjab American Heritage gathering in Yuba City over the Memorial Day weekend.
After Indian Grinding Rock SHP (brought lunch from home) & Daffodil Hill we went to Munnerlyn's Ice Creamery. It's back on Hwy 88, not very far from the above. From Daffodil Hill make a Left on Hwy 88, it's like a block away on the Left after you make the turn, next to Sierra House Restaurant & across from El Dorado Savings Bank.
It's a tiny shop with a very cool giant elephant artwork with ice cream in its trunk. One lady, I think the owner, helped us, very friendly. There were some people before us, but the line grew after we got in, she later got a young girl to help her. I tried 4 flavors & they were all good.
Sampler 6 mini scoops $5.75
Hot fudge sundae Small $5.75; Lg $7.25
Milkshakes 16oz $6
Add Malt 50c
Hand packed pints $6.5
Fresh waffle cones $1
Flavors change daily, check FB. Not updated enough though, & you can't get service on your iPhone to check either!
When I went flavors were:
Blueberry Lavender Dark
Kit Carson Crunk
Mango Habanero Sorbet
Dulce de Leche
Meyer Lemon Custard
I got Meyer Lemon Custard & Kit Carson Crunk on Waffle Cone $6; B. got Junior $2.5 (not enough Maple Walnut lady said, he got a mini scoop of another flavor think it was Vanilla) - Total $8.50. Charged it!
One unisex bathroom in the back by the kitchen. Cool ice cream artwork posters in there. On FB they mentioned would open Sat 3/16/13 earlier 12-8 for Daffodil Hill folks.
Mon, W-Sat 2-8
2 chairs & bench inside; outside 2 round tables with chairs.
Tamales weren't on the menu or I would have bought some.
