“Welcome to Ice Cream Heaven” at Tucker’s Super Creamed Ice Cream, located at 1349 Park Street in Alameda. Take BART to the Fruitvale Station and catch the AC Transit 20 or 21, just outside the fare gates to your left. The closest cross street is Central Avenue.
Sample the wide variety of ice cream flavors (my favorite was Chocolate Fantasy) with tiny metal spoons. Once you have decided, a friendly employee will create a thick old-fashioned milkshake. Take note, all chocolate comes from Guittard, a local Peninsula chocolate factory.
Tucker’s, established in 1941, is a former music store that has brick flooring, a Spanish-tiled staircase, (to the secret room upstairs where the ice cream is made) chandeliers, and lots of parlor tables.
Enjoy the many bay/city murals that adorn the walls as you enjoy your milkshake, a tasty treat in a homey and family-friendly environment.
