Old fashioned ice cream parlor fun!

Great spot right in the middle of downtown Manhattan Beach for old time ice cream cones, sundaes, banana splits, etc. Store also has cases full of dipped chocolate bars, frozen bananas, ice cream sandwiches and cupcakes!

MB Creamery is the place for ice cream in MB. Worth the wait as there often is a line out the door. The service is fast and friendly and the selection of flavors is sure to please most.

This place was so cute and had something for everyone. My friend was able to find candy she was unable to find in Texas and there were many options for your sweet tooth. I decided to get an ice cream sandwich that totally hit the spot after dinner. They offered cupcakes, ice cream, cookies, candy, novelty items, cotton candy, and... More

Just about the best ice cream we've enjoyed! The flavors seem to change frequently and they are ALL delicious. I usually ask for a "taste" before I order a new flavor. Staff is VERY friendly and helpful.

We stayed in Manhattan Beach on a long layover at LAX and were in the mood for some ice cream. Wow. That was good. Had the amaretto chocolate chip ice cream and one of their ice cream sandwiches both of which were excellent. If you like ice cream and are in the area, you certainly should drop by.

Wow! The ice cream sandwiches at this shop are awesome. I had the chance to visit three times while traveling on business in LA. I've had The Original, The Macadamia Nut Cookie, and the Red Velvet. All were amazing. You have to try it.

Wow, just had a scoop of the Coffee Heathbar Crunch. Yum! The ice cream was so creamy & not overly sweet. They let you try flavors & have special flavors for the month as well. A difficult decision with so many to choose from & all the unusual combinations. The ice cream sandwiches looked delightful. There are also beautiful designer... More

This was a magnificent little ice creamery. We had icecream and sat in their king and queen chairs by the window. they also had the most amazing looking cupcakes and loads of cool candy to purchase. The service was great too.

We enjoyed the cookie ice cream sandwich. You pick 2 of their homemade cookies (I chose chocolate chip), your ice cream flavor (rocky road for me) and then a topping (mine was dipped in dark chocolate). It was worth every calorie. My only suggestion is the ice cream sandwiches need to be put in a container. Mine melted all over... More

My friend and I had a day to hang around Manhattan Beach and we happened upon this ice cream parlour. The interior is great and there's not just ice cream on sale but cupcakes, cake pops and other sweet treats. I ordered a double and chose the pecan butter and pistachio ice creams with whipped cream and crushed nuts. The... More
