Fentons Creamery is an ice cream shop and cafe. Their Oakland location is near Pixar’s Emeryville Studio and a favorite of their animators – a usual spot to gather after meeting a deadline.

Pete Docter, director of Pixar’s Up (2009), lives in Oakland and is a frequent visitor to Fentons with his children. He is such a fan that he incorporated a likeness of the local shop, logo and all, into the final version of the film as Russell, Carl, and Dug enjoy a cone on the sidewalk in front of the store.

If you visit this shop, look for a framed photo of the above scene as well as a plaque with the following quote:

To Fentons:
“Thanks for all the ice cream!
And for a great place to meet friends.”
