After a warm morning's hiking around the South Yuba River this weekend, my son and I headed home via one of my favourite little California towns, Nevada City. It was time for some ice cream from the delightfully old-fashioned Nevada City Chocolate Shoppe. This place has become a staple for satisfying a sweet tooth when we're travelling in the area.
The place has a wonderful old-time candy store feel and is family-run. Service is a bit variable, and the $10 credit/debit card minimum can be inconvenient if you're not prepared (there isn't a readily accessible cash machine around that I could find), but we've always enjoyed the ice cream and chocolates we've gotten there.
We love perusing the mix of sweets - some familiar, some strange, some yum, some "what the hell?"
We opted for coconut ice cream and rainbow sherbet. I daresay we chose wisely.
