When I was a kid my family and I would stop for sundaes every time we were in the fremont area. The caramel sundae with cookies and cream ice was my treat baby... After they closed down at the fremont hub I thought they were gone forever. I decided to look up my old friends and found them in sac only an hour from where I'm at today. It seems the ice cream shop is under some controversial discrimination. Well I'm proud to see that they stand up for what they believe in and for what is right. By standing against the abomination that is known as gay marriage. What is this world coming to? I for one will be making the trip very soon to be reunited with my caramel sundae and will be happy to enjoy it in the presence of moral people. Thank You Leatherby's!!

So my kids (9, 11 and 13) decided after eating at Leatherby's their whole lives, that they did not want to patronize a company who did not believe in equal rights for everyone. They decided that the ice cream was yummy, but they don't want our dollars going towards removing rights from people in our community. I have to say I am very proud of them!!!
Last night was the first time we visited Leatherby's, after we heard that they were boycoted for donating money to support the marriage between a man and a woman. We had the best service and icecream. We brought another family along and encouraged all our friends to suport this restaurant for standing for the truth and what is right. Should we boycot the Public Schools and Teacher's Association for donating money for no on 8??? That is not right or fair, so if you are reading this , do Support Leatherby's!!!! Will go back!!!!
Wow.. great Ice Cream, Great Pies, Great Family Values. This creamery gets 100% support for standing up for FAMILIES.. look at the reviews it isn't the people with the family values who show the bitterness, it is those that have no family to value....
Leatherby's ice cream is excellent! When our FAMILY indulges in treats, it's at Leatherby's FAMILY Creamery! The ice cream servings are ridiculously large--the prefect size to share with your sweetheart/child(ren). Love the caramel topping with toasted almond ice cream in particular. The prices are right, too! Leatherby's FAMILY Creamery has been a huge supporter in the community for decades. They're a family concern with good, old fashioned FAMILY values. There simply aren't enough solid FAMILY businesses like Leatherby's FAMILY Creamery anymore.
Anyone who speaks against Leatherby's FAMILY Creamery and accuses them of ""hate"" because they support a cause, simply does not know anything about the business or the FAMILY. The same people would be singing their praises if Leatherby's FAMILY Creamery decided their way on a given issue. Consider the source and the anger behind their detractors, then DECIDE FOR YOURSELF about their ice cream. I believe you'll like it, too!
As for me and my house, we will continue to support Leatherby's FAMILY Creamery! :o)
Leatherby's FAMILY Creamery - A loyal FAMILY friend in the community!
My husband and I really enjoyed our experience at Leatherby's! The service was great and the atmosphere was wonderful. It is a very family friendly place. We had dinner and sundae's. Dinner was very good, my Husband loved his burger. And the sundae's!!! Whoooo they are BIG!!! Be prepared for alot of delicious ice cream!! I have to say that I was very HAPPY to see that the store is doing very well, in spite of the bitter and angry people who are harrasing this traditional family resturant. Leave the politics at home and go there to enjoy some good food and friendly service.
Other than the fact that the Arden way store smells of dirty towels and just being plain dirty, I will not do business with people that say one thing and do the complete opposite. In your interview with the Sacramento Bee, you, Dave Leatherby said, ""Let's move on. I always told my children that once a rule was made, you have to abide by it. I think it should be the same in this circumstance. Well, apparently, you DO NOT PRACTICE what you preach. Apparently, you forgot about the court ruling back in June. They said that marriage between two people with the same gender was legal. So, by supporting Prop. 8, I am assuming that you are telling people that it's ""OK"" for you to go against the law, but, for the opponents of Prop. 8, it's not okay to go against you and all the other supporters of Prop. 8. I too am a Catholic, but I tell you what, I would rather have people of the same gender marry, than worry about what the priests are doing in the rectory or in the confessional. Hey, but it was ""OK"" for the bishops and the Catholic church itself to just sweep the pedophile priests under the rug. What did the church do about all that? They just moved those priests to another diocese. The Catholic church is just as hypocritical in their doctrine as you are in your so-called religious beliefs. Try living by your advice to your children, you and all the other proponents of Prop. 8 should have ""moved on"" when the court ruling came down. I hope that one day, you will be put in the same position that you have put the GLBT community in. When that happens, we will all tell you supporters to ""Let's move on"". It is just so endearing that you are raising 10 more people just like you. God save us all. You seem to be the type that would have kept women from voting, made sure that blacks sat in the rear of the bus and made sure that there would never be inter-racial marriages. Let me reiterate what I said before, you should have ""MOVED ON"".
I have not been to Leatherby's since I was a boy living in the Bay Area. However, because of the backlash that your organizaiton is receiving because you excersized your civil right to donate to a cause that you believed in, my family of 9 children and I will now be dining with you on a regular basis. We want you to know that we refuse to be intimidated by those who would limit the very rights of those they accuse of attemting to limit their rights! Way too much hypocrisy!
We will see you soon, I hope your food is good.
It's a no-brainer that I will never take my family to Leatherby's again (it's not like they're the only ice cream parlor in town, anyway) after I read about their contribution to Prop 8 on the Bee's web site. I then looked on Leatherby's web site and saw a Utah address. That explains a lot. So this company can and its owners can spend their money to support reprehensible issues if they choose to...I just won't be giving them any more of mine to use for it.
Though I used to frequent this establishment with my family, I will no longer do so. I am sick to learn that my patronage $$ were used to fund the repeal of GLBT's civil rights in California. I'd rather give my $$ to Gunther's or even Baskin Robbins to avoid this place from now on. Vote with your dollar.
Long time customer and supporter but I can no longer be a patron of any company that supports taking away rights of any group. These Pro 8 arguments are the same exact ones we heard back in the days when blacks were not allowed to marry whites in this country. Do you own research, they were ""protecting the instituion of marriage"" also. What a crock.
All of my family and friends have stopped going to Leatherby's so I can avoid Leatherby's ""confusion"". So you participate in the annual gay pride event? Next you'll be telling us you have friends that are minorities.

Alan Leatherby, General Manager of Leatherby's, made a personal donation of $10,000 to ProtectMarriage (dot) com in support of the hateful and discriminatory Proposition 8. If you are a supporter or member of the LGBT community, or civil rights in general, please boycott this establishment. There isn't a sundae in the world creamy and delicious enough to reverse the damage this family business has sponsored.

I ordered two scoops of two different flavors, butter pecan & some type of chocolate. The butter pecan tasted stale. The chocolate flavor had little shivers of ice throughout and tasted stale. Anyone who really appreciates quality ice cream knows that these are signs of improperly stored and/or old ice cream. The portions may be large, but it's like have a large cowpie instead of a small one. It's still a cowpie. I can't believe someone would have the audacity to compare this cheap quality ice cream to Cold Stone.
