My boyfriend was visiting from England, and being that the Two Of Us are huge Beatles fans, we learned that There's A Place in Pacific Grove selling ice cream and displaying Beatles memorabilia. As Day Trippers, we firstly visited the Octopus' Garden, at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, before taking The Long and Winding Road to the shop. The shop is... More

We come to Pacific Grove every year for our anniversary and we always stop in for an ice cream. It is pricey. They have beatles memorabilia in the entire shop. Cash only.

Service was slooooow, horrible music blasting, and the ice cream was old and freezer burnt. Go to the grocery store and get a Klondike!

We stopped here on a Monday night, everything was pretty much closed except this interesting place. The icecream was quite tasty.

Tiny and funky little gem in wonderful Pacific Grove. Locals and travelers both love this place. The only place serving Lappert's ice cream in Northern California and, yes, we drive over 3 hours to come here. Okay, to be honest, we're here for more than the ice cream, but we've been tempted to drive out of our way just for... More

Excellent selection of flavors. Neat, eclectic collection of rock and roll stuff. Worth a visit for sure.

This place is unique. The handcrafted ice cream is delicious, with a mouth watering array of flavors available. The shop itself is, in a sense, part museum with posters and memorabilia of the Beatles and 1960's music history. These, together with the wickedly fine cones and milkshakes available make this place a destination in itself.

This has great ice cream, including hard to get flavors like peppermint. (Not the green mint kind, but real peppermint). They also have a bunch of 60s memorabilia, which is fun to see. A real hometown ice cream spot!

Had 2 scoops: blueberry cheesecake and french vanilla (bourbon vanilla). Both were superb. Enjoyed the selection of gourmet root beers by purchasing 2.

Popped in for an ice cream thinking it looked like an old fashioned soda shoppe. I couldn't even see what flavors they had because there was so much stuff in the way and they had them stacked funny. I ended up with 1 1/2 scoops in a bowl for $4.40. The scoops weren't huge, in fact very manageable. The girl... More
