MooTime offers a large selection of flavors but I can only tell you about one since my husband and I both ordered coffee. The portion is ample. The ice cream is creamy deliciousness! We also got the chocolate covered sugar cones which were crispy and fresh.

Large variety of flavors and music from the 50's and 60's really added atmosphere! Loved the Elvis statue out front.

Moo time was delicious! They were very patient with my toddler who wanted to try the purple and blue ice cream before deciding on chocolate. The location was great - right in the middle of all the restaurants and shops.

Moo Time has amazing treats in a fun atmosphere. From the cow outside to the decor inside, it's a fun ice cream shop. A must try in Coronado.

I'm a huge fan of Cold Stone's, although we all know their prices are ridiculous. Well, I found another Ice Cream place that is just as good if not better, and the prices are reasonable. Moo Times in Coronado is my new favorite ice cream place. Customer service is superb, the product is perfectd, and the prices are very reasonable... More

As expected, the place was crowded with a huge line out the door, but worth it! The Belgian chocolate ice cream was fabulous. The Cons: the time between when you get your ice cream order and when you pay was too long, the ice cream melted fast around the cup, leaving me with a drippy chocolate mess. Once I paid,... More

Creamy, lots of flavor to choose from...a beautiful neon blue facade....an Elvis statue and a cow as well. What else does one need??!! The ice cream is delicious, whether in a cup or cone, you will get a lot! Burgers and sandwiches are also available, but we only had their ice cream. A great fun neighborhood in downtown Coronado....go for... More

Best ice cream ever always delicious. Go to the main store on Orange Avenue not the outlet at The Del.

Local creamery with enough choices to make everyone happy. Just remember its ICE CREAM....Calories do not count. Really good, usually local kids working the counter, sit outside and people watch while you eat your creation.

Thank Lydia B

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.
