Coaches Old Fashioned Ice Cream Parlor Opening May 25th at Wendy-Kimber Plaza in Newbury Park

UPDATE: Coaches Old Fashioned Ice Cream Parlor’s grand opening is Saturday, May 25th at 10:30am.


Coaches Old Fashioned Ice Cream Parlor is “coming soon” to the Wendy-Kimber Plaza, 3345 Kimber Drive, Newbury Park. It will be located next to Country Harvest, in the space previously occupied by Bushido Martial Arts, which moved a few suites down.

Rumor has it that the owners are the same folks that own Country Harvest. This will undoubtedly be an exciting addition to the neighborhood.

Afters Ice Cream at The Collection at RiverPark in Oxnard Opened on June 9th

We noticed the big line outside of the brand new Afters Ice Cream at The Annex at The Collection at RiverPark in Oxnard this past Sunday.  Afters' grand opening was the day before. 

You'll find unique flavors like Milk and Cereal, Cookie Monster and Jasmine Milk Tea at Afters. You'll also find the Milky Bun™ - a mix of a glazed bun with ice cream stuffed in between. We didn't try it but it looks absolutely delish!

A New Häagen-Dazs® Scoop Shop Appears to Be Opening Soon in Thousand Oaks

Update 11/20/15: Well Betsy M filled us in that the Haagen-Dazs Westlake Village is now closed. That didn't last long! This was confirmed by the fact that this location has vaporized from the Haagen-Dazs website at and the phone is no longer in service. 

Update 6/9/14: The new Haagen-Dazs at North Ranch Plaza, 3825 E. Thousand Oaks Boulevard, Westlake Village opened its doors about nine days ago. They are open 10am to 10pm. Call 805.379.9840 for more information.

Let's take a closer look at that sign in the window.


I'm going out on a limb here, but it would appear that a Häagen-Dazs® shop will be opening here in Spring 2014. Assuming these signs are not a cruel prank, this will be the 2nd Häagen-Dazs® shop in the Conejo Valley, joining the Häagen-Dazs® Scoop Shop at The Oaks Mall. Visit for more information.

As we are big fans of frozen treats here at CVG, we do our best to keep track of frozen yogurt, gelato, ice cream and other frozen treats in and around Ventura County.

The Häagen-Dazs® brand was originated by Reuben Mattus in New York in the early 1920s, starting out with only three flavors: vanilla, chocolate, and coffee. By 1973, Häagen-Dazs® was available throughout the U.S. and the first "Scoop Shop" opened in 1976. In 1983 the brand was sold to The Pillsbury Company. General Mills bought Pillsbury in 2001. But in the U.S. and Canada, the Häagen-Dazs® brand is licensed to Nestlé and its products are produced by Nestle subsidiary Dreyer's. Too much information? OK, I'll stop there :)
