Great ice cream, no where to sit

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... read 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

This place has an excellent selection of ice creams and cones. I think there were 6 different types of cones you could get-plan or waffle and then dipped in different chocolates and some with nut or candy coatings. I had the coffee ice cream and it was fantastic. They also have some fun candies, macaroons and other fancy baked goods.... More

I love that this place is always changing their ice cream flavors. Its got a fun vibe and if you're not into ice cream they cupcakes, candy, and more. The only menu item I didn't care for was the ice cream sandwiches. The cookies must have been refrigerated because they were very hard to bite into and almost hurt to... More

Manhattan Beach is a fun place to stroll, shop and eat. Certainly this place is worth a stop instead of getting dessert at the restaurant. After dinner, we had to try. My eyes were delighted and had to refrain from over ordering. They have so many sweet delights to choose from...various candies, ice cream, candied apple, cupcakes-- THEY even have... More

The seating is limited but has a good variety of ice cream treats. Great place to find nostalgic candy items.

After a negative experience at a nearby restaurant and a walk down Manhattan Beach Pier, we passed by this place on the journey back up the hill. Since I love ice cream and chocolate, it peaked our curiosity. After a few steps inside the door and the smell in the air, I knew I wouldn't walk away empty handed! I... More
