Great Shakes - Palm Springs, California

Great Shakes

If you have ever been to Palm Springs during the summer, you will know how important it is to find yourself a good ice cream shop! While on a weekend get away, we found ourselves shopping along the downtown area nearly melting away from the desert sun. Thankfully, we came across this cute hole in the wall ice cream shop, Great shakes! Inside this retro feeling spot are happy blue painted walls with  black and white checkered flooring. From malts, floats, and shakes we ended up ordering a decedent Oreo  milkshake with a swirling tower of whipped cream, Oreo crumbles and a signature mini donut! Besides the pure refreshment of a cold ice cream on a hot day, the ice cream itself was thick and creamy! Swirls of chocolate were running through the middle giving it that extra hint of richness. From the mini donut and quality ice cream, we would say this is a must stop shop!
