Your tastebuds will melt the ice cream is so delicious. There are many flavors.. There is limited seating so be prepared for this. There may also be long lines. Note: If you order two scoops in a dish, you will find two scoop sundaes that may be less expensive.

Do not go on the first one Lappert's Ice Cream in Sausalito, which is overcrowded, but walk a little bit to find the second one, with the same ice creams ! The cones are soooo good

Lots of interesting ice cream and sorbet flavors, some with Hawaiian inspiration. I like sorbets and the passion fruit sorbet I had is now one of my all time favorites. They also have home made ice cream sandwiches which my daughter loved. In the crowded heart of touristy Sausalito. Take your ice cream across the street and eat while enjoying... More

Small store near the foreshore in Sausalito, this gem serves tasty ice-cream in a wide variety of delicious flavours and cones. Best visited between ferry and tour arrivals as I imagine they get over-run with large numbers.

expensive ice cream for what it is - $4.05 for a small cup. Queuing system can only be described as chaos. The staff ask you what you want when you're 2 back from the counter and then get annoyed when you don't know as you haven't seen the ice cream on offer yet. Can't recommend it

Great ice cream. Many of the selections were unique.Sorbet flavors are availalbe for those with dairy-free needs as well. It's right on the main drag on the waterfront in the city.

Following a fabulous meal at SCOMA's (just down the street) was going to be a "fairly high hurdle" for any desert shop. This place delivers! Great flavors, sugar free selections, multitude of cone selections and regular food selections make this place really good. Don't worry, they're are plenty of calories!

Probably one of the famous stops once in downtown Sausalito, and for good reason too ! We braved through long lines, crowded space in this quaint ice cream shop. There is always a line snaking from the door but there were about 4 servers so the wait went by fast. It was organized. Lack of seating though, but understandable, since... More

Very popular among the locals. Waffle cones are very good, one scoop is plenty! Two scoops are too much. Constant cool weather very nice for walking the shopping district with fresh ice cream. Delightful treat.
