A friend told us about the good ice cream at this creamery. We decided to try it as a break from shopping at the nearby outlet. It was not busy, since it was on Tuesday. My wife and I decided to share their Banana Special,...More

A decent meal for two under $40 with tip included. Food was hot and tasty but not exceptional. I did not have any ice cream though so I can't speak to it. I would return.

I had heard of Fenton' s since I moved to the bay area in the 80's, but it was always the Oakland location. When I saw they had a location in Vacaville I just had to stop. The sandwiches were great, not something you hear...More
