To all you ice cream fans and Italian ices fans: get thee to the Flavor Brigade on Fruitvale Ave in Oakland. They're making incredible ice cream from Strauss's organic milk. I tried a double of the coffee ice cream and strawberry -- it was truly great.
and the Italian ices -- as someone said here recently -- is the Real Deal.
They gotta improve the signage (hard to see from the street), and PR, so folks will give 'em the business they deserve.
And as if that's not enough -- there's a spacious parking lot right there.
