Very Good Ice Cream for a Reasonable Price

I was hesitant to try this place (recommended by a friend) because it was so inexpensive. I was pleasantly surprised. The ice cream is quite good. They offer a single scoop sundae for $2.49. The hot fudge sauce is different from the usual but tasty. After one try, I have skipped the whipped... read more

John's has at least two locations - one in downtown Berkeley and this one - in Brentwood CA. OK - so they used to be $1 a scoop, and now they have gone up a bit - but it's still the deal for quality ice cream, good service and friendly staff. What's not to like?

John's ice cream may look unassuming from the outside (and even from the inside) however, don't judge a book by it's cover, this is an ice cream aficionado's dream. The assortment of delicious ice cream flavors are endless. They even have exotic flavors like mango, lychee, ube, coconut, and avocado, like you would find back home in the islands. :)... More

Look it up on trip advisor to support my local creamery. So I went. Place wasn't clean. Even as you walk the ground had ice cream melted from the little kids eating and dropping their ice cream. Counter was dirty. Tried different samples but wasn't impressed. So I stuck with what I know I had coffee ice cream. Flavorful but... More

Always a favorite place to stop after a meal. The choice of ever changing delicious and interesting flavors all for $1 a scoop. How do they do it?

This is a great place to take kids out for a nice treat without breaking the bank!! Family of five can each have a cone and flavor to suit each one for a five dollar bill!! Seating can be hard to have, but there is a nice shaded bench across the street (in front of another fav--Sticky Chicken and Ribs)... More

Now, that was a saying I grew up with as a youngster in New Zealand but now that I have tasted of John's delights I want to yell it out again. This is a great place for a scrumptious dish or cone of Ice cream. Just about any flavor you can think of and the quality is fabulous. Nothing old... More

$1 scoops...I was expecting some stale, freezer burned, plain ice cream. I was so surprised by their different flavors and quality ice cream. Did I mention that their scoops are $1. Try their Ube flavor, its very tasty.

Only $1 a scoop and it is great to be able to treat the grandkids to a treat without breaking the bank. They loved the Bubble gum ice cream and it brought back memories of taking our own kids out for ice cream and them loving the bubble gum as it was 2 treats in one.
