Marvelli's was a Davis location for a Sacramento based family owned old fashioned ice cream parlor. They painted a mural that covered the south wall of the business with an old fashioned Davis scene and made their ice cream on site. They offered a range of sandwiches and other things to go with their drinks and ice cream dessert.

Previous to "Marvelli's", the popular local chain Leatherby's was located here. Going back to the early 80's, another Sacramento ice cream mainstay was located in this spot: Vic's

Ken's Bike & Ski is now at this location, and the mural can be seen there.
