Meadowlark Dairy in Pleasanton for drive-thru milk, eggs, ice, soft serve ice cream - Who's been?

After dinner in Downtown Pleasanton we were walking around when I noticed many car drivers had soft serve ice cream in their hands while driving. I had to find out where they were coming from.

It's Meadowlark Dairy and you can buy milk, eggs, dry & block ice, and soft serve ice cream. They also have a walk-in area to buy soft serve ice cream. They had Pineapple frosty on the menu, but I was too full to get one. Prices are cheap $2-$2.50 for a cone.

Who's been and can report back? Website has a video on their history.

  1. From the description, this dairy seems like a time slip from the 1940s, and after looking at their homepage the history of this operation bears this out. Sounds like something to patronize whenever you have the chance, if only to keep it from disappearing!

    1. Tried out Meadowlark Dairy Sat 3/18/15 after eating lunch. You can do Drive-Thru where they come to your window and ask what you want without getting out of your car, or you can do walk-up to a table around the corner and stand and wait for ice-cream.

      I wanted a large Strawberry/Pineapple but they didn't have pineapple when I went. So I picked Strawberry/Orange and the guy said it would have to be layered. Ok fine with me. After a few minutes he brought it out, for $2.50 a large it was HUGE!

      Taste was pretty average, but it was soft-serve and Cheap! Only $2.50 for a LARGE! They also have Small $2; or Medium $2.25. Slushies $1.75 or Diablo $3.25.

      Will go back one day if in the area.

      1. re: hhc

        My favorite is their vanilla-orange, give that a try next time and it won't be layered.
