Definitely the best ice cream in OC! Large selection of hard and soft-serve, sundaes and other treats. Kids love to sit on the carousel horse outside!

This was an ok ice cream parlor. I wasn't too amazed with their options. Their times are convenient though. It made an after dinner treat. It was no better than any other ice cream parlor we have been to this week. Plus the line was crazy with no organization. With that line frankly I was disappointed with their flavors.

They have a great selection of ice cream and a good selection of sundaes loaded with your choice of toppings. My wife ate the whole thing! The service was personal. You feel they are creating something special for you. The chocolate covered pretzels are awsome for dipping into your ice cream. The painted horse out front makes for some good... More

Lots of different flavors and toppings to choose from. Some soft serve available also. Mint chocolate chip was very good, and others in our party enjoyed their flavors. Dining area decorated with a few painted carousel horses, fun for kids to look at. Overall great ice cream.

I've been coming to the shore my whole life and finally discovered this great old fashioned ice cream shop. It's worth getting off the boards to enjoy the selection, quality, service and price!

we stopped here after a not so great dinner and was delighted to have a tasty treat. The homemade ice cream was very good and the outdoor seating was a much needed rest spot. The menu was a bit overwhelming so we only ordered ice cream on a cone or in a cup and it was a delightfully tasty surprise.

They have a great assortment of both ice cream flavors (fun ones like tiramisu, death by chocolate, s'mores, coconut, blueberry, peach, chocolate peanut butter, vanilla peanut butter, cherry vanilla, salted caramel pretzel, to name a few) AND toppings. They also serve coffee drinks (though I haven't tried any of them). Their staff is friendly and efficient. I wouldn't say their... More

Everytime I stop into Hobby Horse there is a new flavor to try and I'm never disappointed! I've had tiramisu ice cream for the first time ever and it's amazing! I just tried chocolate coconut and it was like eating an Almond Joy candy! Just love this place! Also they have new Italian cream desserts in little glasses that are... More
