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 [sacramento]Leatherby's was located here. Going back to the early 80's, another Sacramento ice cream mainstay was located in this spot: [sacramento]Vic's

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