Ice Cream Parlor

A Dash of Panache provides Vernon Street visitors with a unique and fun Family Ice Cream and Refreshment Parlor. You do NOT need reservations for the Ice Cream and Refreshment Parlor; just come on in!

Perfect for a tasty lunch or a delicious treat or refreshment break during your shopping adventure on Vernon Street. Our very rich Gunther's Ice Cream is awesome! You should also try our hot toppings. We think we have the best hot fudge and the most flavorful hot caramel in town!
Family Cafe Setting
Our ice cream parlor includes a variety of food and refreshments including:
  • Quality Soups. We pride ourselves in the quality and taste of our soups. We only offer one soup per day but we change the selection often so be sure to ask what's available. A few of our great signature soups include:
    • (big breath) "Portobello Mushroom with Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Bisque,"
    • Creamy Asparagus,
    • Chicken Tortilla,
    • our famous Chilled Strawberry Cream Soup.
  • Gourmet Salads. All of our salads contain fresh greens and many extras. Our Stuffed Apple Chicken Salad is unique and our Haystack salad is a local favorite. Our variety of gourmet dressings are awesome too!
  • Unique Sandwiches. Oh boy, this is something to talk about. Be careful, you may end up with an addiction. Our specials change frequently but you'll find some pretty great selections. Our Tuscan Grilled Chicken sandwich is huge and definitely addicting! Our Chicken Salad with Slivered Almonds and Sliced Grapes sandwich is the best in Placer County! Other popular sandwiches include White Albacore Tuna, Egg Salad with Dill, Gourmet Vegetarian, and Roasted Turkey with Swiss Cheese.
  • Ice cream cones (featuring rich, handmade Gunther's Ice Cream)
  • Sundaes (creamy hot fudge, creamy hot caramel, strawberry, etc.). You gotta try our famous Fudge Brownie Sundae, our trademarked Broken Sugar Cone SundaeTM, and our signature Peanut Butter Panache Sundae!

Having awesome Hot Fudge and Caramel is very important to us. We wanted to serve the best around and it was not easy finding the quality we desired. It took us about 9 months, but we finally found what we sincerely consider to be
the BEST Hot Fudge and Hot Caramel*. In fact, the caramel is so thick, we have to serve it hot! We'd love to prove our claim of having the best so please ask for a sample taste when you come it! *Because we're the only parlor in Northern California using this special caramel.

  • Ice cream Shakes (You've just gotta try the surprisingly awesome Peanut Butter Panache!)
  • Baked goods (scones, muffins, breads, pastries, and our famous Triple Fudge Brownies)
  • A variety of Soft Drinks, Italian sodas, and Italian cream sodas
  • Fruit Smoothies (our recipes are excellent)
  • Coffees, Teas, Cappuccinos, Espresso, Lattes (including kid's coffee-free La-Tays such as the Choco La-Tay and Pink La-Tay, etc.)
  • Occasional varieties of baked Treats like scones, brownies, cupcakes, muffins, bagels, and/or other goodies.

atmosphere is family-oriented and stylish. The quality of the handmade ice cream and the reasonable prices will make this spot a favorite for your friends, family, sports team, office group, or social club.

If you frequent one or both of
Vernon Street's live theatres (just a few doors away on the same side of the street), be sure to swing by A Dash of Panache before or after the show!
