Basic ice cream shop. Lots of flavors, don't charge a ridiculous amount for a scoop. Super casual. They also have shave ice and other options.

Order your tacos at the ice cream counter. These are good street tacos with an amazing salsa bar. Eat outside or inside. Very casual. After you have some yummy tacos enjoy some ice cream, my favorite is salted pretzel

Great quality ice cream with the added bonus of wonderful helpful service. For our first visit the help was appreciated. We were not disappointed - three of us shared a cup of two scoops - serving sizes are large!

This ice cream shop seems to be Carpinteria's best kept secret. Each time we go there, we seem to be the only people in the place! They have oodles of flavors and many of them are top quality McConnel's ice cream from Santa Barbara. Delicious!...More

Good choice; flavors are better than many places; friendly, good service. Prices not bad, either. They also have choc/van/swirl soft-serve yogurt, which was at least better than Costco

Quite a few different flavors to choose from -- but all ordinary (Chocolate, mocha almond fudge, peppermint, etc...). $2.50/scoop with no discount for buying more scoops ($5/two, $7.50/three etc...) Cash only. Easy walk down to the beach while you are eating your ice cream.
