Though the safe is now a photo booth and tellers replaced by ice cream scoopers, there’s still a grandiosity to the Guerneville Bank Club only fitting of a former financial institution. Rehabbed by locals, the 1928 bank building has become an ice cream and pie shop with retail space, an art gallery and the Russian River Historical Society a la carte.
We’re smitten with Nimble and Finn’s cheeky scoop flavors including Manhattan (whisky, vermouth and cherry chunks), blueberry cheesecake and vegan strawberry, rose and geranium sorbet.
Paired with Chile Pies’ sweet apple and chile pie with a drizzle of chile-infused honey? Solid gold.
