Heaven on earth. My wife and kids...ok...me too...loved the ice cream here after dinner. The black cherry vanilla is to die for. Excellent location near to many restaurants on Cannery Row. Skip dessert in the restaurant and come here instead, you will not regret it.

This shop combines chocolate and ice cream. How can you go wrong with that? However there was nothing special about either. The chocolate is the same you can buy at Target but in bulk and I am not sure if at a better price or not. The lemon sorbet was excellent. I did like the 50s soda shop decor.

Little on the expensive side but value for money. Vast menu and choices of ice creams and chocolates. Loved the visit.

Surprised one trip to find that the San Francisco Ghiradelli Ice Cream shop has a store in Monterey. It has the same menu as the SF location, same long lines and same excellent ice cream.

All chocolate on the ice cream is from Ghiradelli, so it's all tasty! Lots of seating hiding all over the restaurant, plus some outside seating facing the ocean if your watching for it. Or grab a table out front and people watch!

Need a break? Great view on the balcony, to sit and relax for a bit with ice cream sundaes. Nothing spectacular about the ice cream but it's good. Nice way to have a snack after the day at the Aquarium.
