We like the location at the Hotel Del Coronado, find the ice cream delicious and visit there as often as we go to Coronado.

This place specializes in the cold stone where they mixed the ice cream and the ingredients together in front of you. This is a local success story. The owner has gone on to open many other restaurants in Coronado. In the summertime the line is off at out the door. I think the restaurant itself has lost a little of... More

The ice cream is amazing! It took us 15 minutes to even decide what we wanted. Everything looked so good. The ice cream sundaes were delicious! It was a great place to stop at!

In addition to these big market treats we have tons of family dairies churning up their own grass-fed milk into ice-cream. Soooo... having said that, it's good ice cream. It satisfies the need for sugar and a cold treat... More

My family had been coming here for years. It's very reliable and the flavors are good. I have two complaints. One is the high price tag, which may be unavoidable on the Coronado main street. second is the insane amount of food coloring. For some reason kids always want the flavors with the most intense coloring. Overall, it's good if... More

A brick & mortar neighborhood institution, MooTime Creamery has been serving up America's favorite dessert to locals and tourists alike for the last 15 years. From Double Dark Chocolate to Stracciatella, the locally owned, '50s style shop provides Coronado with premium handcrafted ice cream, sorbet, yogurt and hand-rolled waffle cones all made fresh daily with the highest quality ingredients. MooTime first opened on Orange Avenue in 1998. Churning out ice cream in a fun, nostalgic atmosphere, the local favorite has seen such stars as Magic Johnson, Jason Alexander, Mandy Moore and Cuba Gooding Jr. come through its doors to enjoy a MooTime treat. MooTime serves a variety of old-fashioned delights from floats and sodas to sundaes and splits. Catering is also available, with a list of options including ice cream bars, float bars and hot fudge bars, taking all of the fun and flavor offsite.
