We love going to John's Ice cream, it cheaper and lots of varieties to chose from esp. Asian I cream, less sugar and way better flavor. Try Ube flavor and another green with coconut :) sorry can't remember the name, but if you're adventurist with food try Asian I cream.

Great treat and amazing quality and value for $ 1.25 per scop. They have a wide variety of unique flavors like avacado, ube, mango, hot chocolate (cayenne pepper). Love it!!!!!

Always visit here for our dessert after dinner at The Sticky Chicken. Where else are you going to get a cone of delicious ice cream for $1.25?

Great ice cream for a great price. I was happy to see the avocado ice cream. I had it once at a friend's house and hadn't seen it since. They have many other delicious flavors, too. Great place to go on a hot day.

This is a very nice place to grab some ice cream or a milkshake they also offer popular flavor's by the pint. They have a nice cone selection and the ice cream is quite good. The prices are reasonable for what you get and that says a lot as everything in California is expensive. The only real negative is the... More

I was hesitant to try this place (recommended by a friend) because it was so inexpensive. I was pleasantly surprised. The ice cream is quite good. They offer a single scoop sundae for $2.49. The hot fudge sauce is different from the usual but tasty. After one try, I have skipped the whipped topping--not very good. The place is always... More

John's has at least two locations - one in downtown Berkeley and this one - in Brentwood CA. OK - so they used to be $1 a scoop, and now they have gone up a bit - but it's still the deal for quality ice cream, good service and friendly staff. What's not to like?

John's ice cream may look unassuming from the outside (and even from the inside) however, don't judge a book by it's cover, this is an ice cream aficionado's dream. The assortment of delicious ice cream flavors are endless. They even have exotic flavors like mango, lychee, ube, coconut, and avocado, like you would find back home in the islands. :)... More

Look it up on trip advisor to support my local creamery. So I went. Place wasn't clean. Even as you walk the ground had ice cream melted from the little kids eating and dropping their ice cream. Counter was dirty. Tried different samples but wasn't impressed. So I stuck with what I know I had coffee ice cream. Flavorful but... More
