Don't miss it for some very good ice cream and check out the cupcakes. Incredible. It is a perfect stop as you are walking up the hill from the pier and beach. And seriously...the cupcakes.....

I fell in love with this place, the moment I saw it. I wanted to try everything but settled for an ice cream sandwich, which was amazing. It's a heaven for a dessert guy like me.

Loved the oatmeal raisin ice cream sandwich. Didn't get to try anything else. Hope to try more on future trips to the area.

I'll be the first to admit that the Creamery very much caters to tourists and is a little on the pricey side, but at the end of the day, it's still worth the price and the wait in line. We are talking some high quality ice cream here, folks. This is the best you're going to get in this region,... More

I wanted everything I saw - baked goods, ice cream, candy. But settled on a cookie and cream ice cream sandwich... so good - the cookie, the ice cream, the atmosphere. A perfect treat after a day at the beach.

You'll pay a lot for a cone here, but it's good ice cream, close to the beach and a cute atmosphere. The place gets super crowded with tourists on hot summer days. Locals love it more in September! Just be prepared for pay a bit more than you expected.

Apparently the birthplace of the ice cream sandwich. Regardless of if it was the first, the sandwiches are pretty darn good. While on vacation I hit this place up 4 different times, and 3 out of 4 times the sandwiches were 5/5. However, there was one time I went and got the "strawberry shortcake" sandwich, and the ice cream was... More

After a long hot day at Manhattan beach there is nothing better than to walk up the street with your family and get an Ice Cream cone or my personal favorite, a creamwich! They have pre-made Ice Cream sandwiches in various kinds of cookies and ice creams or you can choose and make a fresh one! They have a lot... More

The Manhattan Beach Creamery is just 100% Pure Evil... for all of the sweet tooth people out there. It's is delicious and they have Dairy FREE Sorbet. I will be visiting The Manhattan Beach Creamery again very soon.... Hopefully it will live up to my expectations. I suggest making some Dairy Cup Cakes please. So I can embark upon a... More
