Fenton's

4226 Piedmont Ave., Oakland, CA - (510) 658-7000
The best things I ate at Fenton's were sundaes. The menu divides the sundae selection into "Sundaes for the Adventurous" (the really big ones), "Sundaes for the Sophisticate" (classic black-and-whites, black-and-tans), "Sundaes for the Sedate" (only a scoop or two), and "Create Your Own." From a repertoire of a couple dozen house-made ice cream flavors the stand-out for us was Swiss milk chocolate.

"It was a beautiful December day in Oakland, so I got my sundae to go and dined on a table in the patio. This is a "small," spilling out of its pint container. Not seen in the photo is the Swiss milk chocolate ice cream down below, but you do have a good view of the luxurious chocolate-malt Jersey sauce with which it is topped."

While there is an even bigger version of the banana split, the junior version is still a daunting dessert for one person.

This excellent Black & Tan sundae features vanilla and toasted almond ice cream, plus layers of hot fudge and caramel sauce.
