Love the Mexican Chocolate ice cream! They have lots of flavors to choose from and its all hand made. This is the ice cream shop in the Village to go to!

We only tried the ice cream here and it was yummy! Many flavors from natural to the regulars to sugar-free. Naturals included lavender and honey and the sugar free was made with Splenda not Malitol. Everything we tasted we loved and the chocolate lovers in the group were more than pleased with the selections. A must place to visit in Capitola Village.

We stopped by on a recent Friday afternoon for some ice cream. The ice cream was reasonably priced and Mike, the owner , served us himself. Thanks Mike. They offer a Mini...just right for that little taste that you may want after a big meal and will do 1/2 scoops if you want to have more-than-one flavor but don't want to pay for two scoops. That's what I did. Wife had the Mini. We both satisfied our cravings...Ice Cream was good and service was too. Cafe Violette would get a higher rating if the ice cream was made in-house and was also still as good. Alas, they purchase decent ice cream from two sources. 28 flavors are available including sorbet. This little corner-gem sits...on-the-corner, in Capitola across from several beach restaurants. Cafe Violette also serves everything from a breakfast burrito to burgers and sandwiches. We didn't eat any, so, again, can't rate those things. I did find out that the food is not brought in fresh from the farm or dairy, however, most tourists really don't care. Don't believe every celebrity you hear claiming that all-food-but-their-food-is bad-for-you-BS...It won't kill you to eat beach-food like burgers and pizza every-once-in-a-while. I mean, if you want a 32 ounce soda...go for it! Like most restaurants, food is often supplied by restaurant supply companies in the region. Not everyone can be The French Laundry yaknow. Try this lilltle Ice Cream and Food Cafe next time you visit Capitola. WARNING: The Parking Police will ticket your vehicle if you park in the metered parking for more than two hours, even if you move it. They use an infra-red marker on your tires that only they can see...I warned ya.
