Stopped on the way through town to walk, stretch our legs and enjoy a cool cone. Get a sandwich or burger, drink, cone and take a walk down the street to the park at the end of the road.

Good old fashioned soft serve cones, dipped in chocolate. Great after a long day in Yosemite. Gets busy on weekends.

Classic old-style ice cream stand. Only a short walk down the street from all of the local motels. Skip desert wherever you eat in Lee Vining and stroll down to the Mono Cone. Well worth it!

I only stopped by for a shake but it was good. Nice and thick. They added whipped creme which surprised me. The place seemed popular during the evening. I would visit again.
