“Traditions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

You hungry for ice cream? You gotta go here. Probably 40 or more flavors to choose from. Their scoops are large the flavors are excellent. This place is a tradition, a standard thing to do for many of us that grew up in the Bay Area. Spend a day at the beach and swing by Marianne's to get ice cream for the ride home! Way back in the 60's my mom and I would stop here, I would get Bubble Gum ice cream and count the number of bubble gum balls I would get in each scoop. This time I got Irish Coffee Crunch...totally yummy! I live out of state now but we always stop when we come to Santa Cruz. Make sure you take a number when you walk in cuz they are always busy and parking is usually a problem. Enjoy!

“don't bring a credit card”

can't see the ice cream.. Names on board only. They don't except credit cards.. Cash only. Ice cream was good. They could clean the place up a bit.

“really delicious!! every flavor is great!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

This place is killer. I used to go here alot with my grandmother and grandfather. I miss those old times. I would honestly say, they don't make a bad flavor ice cream there. there are worth the price for the best ice cream shop in town anywhere around. and they have great customer service, always very friendly people working in there. and I love how their so cool there and they let you try as many flavors as you want until you decide on one. =)
