Description: 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.

“Moo Time Creamery Will Satisfy An Ice Cream Purist”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

No trip to Coronado is complete without stopping for ice cream at Moo Time Creamery at least once. There are two locations, one at the Hotel Del and the other on Orange Avenue. Both seem to have consistent lines throughout the day and especially during the after dinner evening hours. There are lots of flavors to choose from, after which you can add one or more mixers to your ice cream for an additional price and custom concoction. The ice cream is good and dense, so if you are an ice cream purist, enjoy as is. I highly recommend the double dark chocolate, when available.

“Really Yummy Ice Cream”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

Great ice cream! Really creamy and rich! It was pretty crowded and took a while to get through the line, but worth the wait! Worth a visit while you are on the island!

“Tin Roof Sundae”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

I dined in and enjoyed the atmosphere of this little ice cream shop. They offer fresh waffle cones, shakes and bakery items a la mode. I enjoyed a fudgy, nutty sundae. It was perfect after being on the beach all day and I'm glad I found this place on TA.

“Great icecream!”
Reviewed July 5, 2012 via mobile

This place has been around for over 11 years. It's put many ice cream lovations out of business because it's so popular and does ice cream the right way. It's homemade the day of, the staff is all teenagers who don't know how to provide a true customer experience but that's okay, the ice cream makes up for that. Average price that competes with Cold Stone. The cow & Elvis should be re painted outside and with this place being 11 yrs old I can see some wear & tear that should be addressed but that will not take away from the good treats. At least experience it once
