It's famous in LA and when you see it at the store you have to get it but ideally you should go to the original store on Mission as they are always experimenting with flavors. We tried two of their new test flavors. A turkish coffee chip and a crazy can't remember caramel salted banana... as well, we tried the... More

Do yourself a favor and try the best ice cream anywhere in the world! My only gripe is that they don't have scoop shops everywhere like Ben and Jerrys does. This is truly the ice cream aficionado's ice cream! I dream about it. We have some of the flavors in our local stores but not a great variety unfortunately. The... More

Every visit to Santa Barbara I have to stop by at least once. My favorite is the eureka lemon marionberry ice cream. In reality all of there ice cream is wonderful. The company does have a second establishment on state but I prefer the location on De La Vina. If you have a opportunity to be in Santa Barbara I... More

I am a true lover of frozen yogurt. McConnell's frozen yogurt is the best ever. And whenever I am in Santa Barbara I regularly make my way over to McConnell's for my daily "fix." I have never been disappointed and I have been coming for several years. Not only are the flavors always interesting and the consistency and temperature just... More

They have some great ice cream, and a parking lot that really helps because it is popular and worth the drive to go there. A lot of great flavors and everyone who works there is very nice including the owner.

Mc Connells has the best ice cream in town! The owner is always on site. There is another mc connells on state street but this on has better tasting ice cream. The staff is friendly and efficient. There are lines but they push through them quickly. Another hard to park location but worth it!

Love coming here when in town. They have many unique flavors of ice cream. Prices might seem a bit high, but once you see the amount of ice cream you get and the flavor it's well Worth it.
