The food menu is pretty deli-boring, but the Doc Burnstein's ice cream is worth the stop for sure. This is a licensed location for Doc B's which is opening, or has opened in San Luis Obispo. The ice cream has no air, it does not melt, it is creamy and yummy and the falvors are unique and awesome. One scoop is $4, but two scoops is $5, so figure that math out for yourself. If you get one scoop for $4, and skip getting two, when you find out that you loved it that much (and you will), then you will end up paying $8 instead of $5 because you will be buying two single scoops. Do yourself a favor and just get two scoops to start.

I don't know where they get it but it's better than anything we can get in southern California. The have a great selection of flavors, different size cones and great gifts for sale. The wine bottle stoppers are really unique,

We stopped in for lunches, snacks and drinks, and my husband and son had a big breakfast one morning before a long bike ride. All was delicious! They are so friendly there, too! They made us feel at home and so welcomed!

Stopped in here and bought some fudge to curb our sweet tooth craving after lunch at the Custom House. I usually don 't like fudge since it is too sweet but their fudge is delicious and not too sweet. Glad we stopped in and will do so again when we return to the area on our next visit.

We always have to come here while we are in the area! The Doc Burnstein's Ice Cream is a must while touring the Central Coast. We always try something new each time, and we have never been disappointed!
