Just remember to check their hours open for business. I've enjoyed lunch, afternoon snack many times at Serendipity Ice Cream. A wonderful place, staff and variety of ice cream, as well as daily soup specials :-)

Not just an ice cream shop. Wonderful soups and cornbread for lunch, plus baked cookies that are amazing. Also give veterans discounts and on veterans day vet gets ice cream free. Owned by a non-profit for adults with disabilities.

From Our Editors

Though architectural flourishes once called attention to their Gilded Age opulence, these days the entrance and lobby of the historic Cook’s Hotel bear the egalitarian trappings of a turn-of-the-century ice-cream parlor. These welcoming sights are just one part of Serendipity Ice Cream’s core mission. Operating as a division of Mid-Valley Rehabilitation—a nonprofit dedicated to providing employment, residential, and transportation services to adults with disabilities—the parlor gives the center’s clients the chance to get real-world work experience and independence. Here, staffers scoop 24 classic and seasonal flavors of Oregon-made ice cream into handmade waffle cones, sundaes, floats, shakes, and banana splits. Sugar-free ice cream and dairy-free sorbets attend to special diets alongside treats such as soups and made-from-scratch cookies baked fresh daily. In addition to the sky-high cones and friendly service, old-fashioned candy, glass-bottled retro sodas, and teenagers who settle their differences by dancing add to the parlor’s period feel.
