After our lunch at Fred’s Mexican Cafe, we took a pleasant walk further down San Diego Avenue to our dessert destination. Korky’s is on the outskirt of all the major stores and restaurants on San Diego Ave. Since we were full from lunch, the little walk was a nice welcome as were the little breezes that cooled us off for fleeting moments since the sun was in full blast overhead. We checked out all the restaurants along the way but none that I saw to make a mental note of.
Korky’s is a small place separated into two areas, the ice cream and ordering side, and another side for those who want to sit for coffee and such. An assortment of cards and postcards in case you need to pick one up while here.
Don’t expect fancy ice creams made in house at Korky’s. Just standard Dreyer’s Ice Cream, which was perfectly acceptable for us on this day. The prices are kind of steep but we are in Old Town. The Mister got a scoop of Vanilla (his favorite) in a cup. Sorry no picture but then how wowing could a picture of a scoop of vanilla ice cream be. I went with a scoop of Butter Pecan on a regular cone. Always a good choice.
We sat outside on one of the tables under the shade of a tree enjoying our ice cream. Sine we were kind of off the beaten path, there wasn’t too much foot traffic passing by. It was a very nice way to end our lunch date.
