4226 Piedmont Avenue
Oakland, CA 94709
Bustling, eclectic, and entertaining Piedmont Avenue is the home of several wonderful small businesses, and right in the middle of all the excitement is the little creamery that could: Fentons.
Fentons is the ice cream parlor that started it all (on Piedmont Avenue, that is). Family owned and operated since 1894, Fentons is synonymous with tradition, and after all these years it still hearkens back to the days when life was a lot simpler. Its retro soda fountain, handcrafted ice creams and sauces, and genius sundae inventions have kept customers coming back for more than a century.
To go with its endearing diner vibe, Fentons offers a menu of “old-fashioned-with-a-twist” food choices like fresh crab meat salad, classic burgers, sandwiches, and salads—none of which, of course, would be complete without a side of crispy fries and a thick milk shake.
