Cream'wich!!

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

Classic Ice cream and confectionary shop. They have ice cream you have never tried before and it's all very good. This visit I had salted Carmel ice cream and butter pecan. Very rich full creamed deliciousness.

I went here with my family for a nice cream treat, and it was busy! There is a lot going on in the store, lots of towers of old time candies that don't need to be there. We got several different types of ice cream and all flavors were delicious! It was very cold in the store and there was... More

Made two visits to this ice cream shop during a recent trip to LA. Each time I tried a number of flavors, but kept returning to the graham cracker and bananas foster in a waffle cone. The other flavors were good as well, but I felt that these two flavors were particularly yummy! My son ordered a customized ice cream... More

I visited here two consecutive days. Obviously the first experience was excellent. The second however had different staff. With low intelligence one girl stood at the cash register and her colleagues attempted to fulfil our order of 3 items. I asked on two occasions for my strawberry as there was no obvious movement to fulfil this request, the cash register... More
