Tired of queuing at Miyahara Ice Cream Parlor, then its sister site is for you. Fourth Credit Union is an opulent three-story cafe set in an old converted bank. Originally built in 1966, it was reopened in 2013 by Dawncake, the same people who run Miyahara a few blocks down. The site is far quieter than its more well-known counterpart, yet with the same quality of ice cream and a very different feel.
First floor cream counters serve 72 flavors of ice cream at $90 a scoop. Moving upstairs, a cafe on the second floor has popular treats like syrup waffles, popcorn chicken and cookies. A wide variety of drinks and coffee is also available. The newly-opened shaved ice counter is particularly worth checking out, though pricey.
A Chiq Interior
While the interior decor may be a little too ostentatious for some, the original bank vault doors and standing counters add a nice touch. There’s plenty of seating on all floors, and in general it’s a much more convenient place to eat ice cream than Miyahara. Great ambiance, though a little on the expensive side
