A brick & mortar neighborhood institution, MooTime Creamery has been serving up America's favorite dessert to locals and tourists alike for the last 15 years. From Double Dark Chocolate to Stracciatella, the locally owned, '50s style shop provides Coronado with premium handcrafted ice cream, sorbet, yogurt and hand-rolled waffle cones all made fresh daily with the highest quality ingredients. MooTime first opened on Orange Avenue in 1998. Churning out ice cream in a fun, nostalgic atmosphere, the local favorite has seen such stars as Magic Johnson, Jason Alexander, Mandy Moore and Cuba Gooding Jr. come through its doors to enjoy a MooTime treat. MooTime serves a variety of old-fashioned delights from floats and sodas to sundaes and splits. Catering is also available, with a list of options including ice cream bars, float bars and hot fudge bars, taking all of the fun and flavor offsite.

My cousin loved it!!!

I'm not an ice cream fan, but my cousin wanted to stop in. She thought she could eat the biggest thing on the menu and failed. It could have fed at least 4 people for under $10. I was told the ice cream and brownies were amazing. I got a shake and it was awesome. I would highly recommend.

I am not an ice cream person... but my daughter is.... so we went in. They had super unique flavors. This is not an average ice cream shop- the dipped cones are the real thing. My daughter got 'birthday cake' and it tasted EXACTLY like Betty Crockers white cake mix that I used to lick off the mixer... crazy flash... More

This place is like the old fashioned ice cream parlor décor. But the ice cream is definitely update!! They have some really interesting ice cream combinations. Every one we've tried is great. Our absolute favorite though, is the pomegranate chip! This is a "MUST STOP" whenever we're in the San Diego area! It's always busy. There's not a lot of... More

We were exploring Coronado and decided to drop in to Moo Time for an ice cream. We had three Moo Burgers (Ice Cream between two cookies) and a sundae - all of which were substantial and very, very tasty... We did, however, have to find a seat to eat them as they were not travellers - my kids would have... More

We stumbled upon this place after lunch and was lured in by the waffle cone smell. The ice cream choices are endless and there are even dairy free choices. It is a must go when your on the island!

Best milkshake EVER! Small place, a few tables outside and a few stools inside so it can be hard to find seating (especially in the summer months), but well worth the inconvenience. Have yet to order something that I didn't love.
