One of the best chocolates on the west coast made into a variety of scrumptious creamy desserts. Worth the price!

This shop sits right on the ocean. I got a sundae with chocolate ice cream, mint chocolate chip ice cream, and dark chocolate hot fudge sauce. It was so good, I had the same thing in San Francisco at the Ghiradelli Square shop. Lots of wait staff to keep things moving.

We visited last September as part of a trip!

After passing on Ghiradelli in San Francisco due to how busy and overcrowded it was, I was very pleased to see one in Monterey!

We went in and there seemed to be a lot of flies everywhere, however the outside is very open so I can see how they get in (but not great).

We got a ice cream and sat outside on the outside seating area! This was the best part - the view!

Wow the ice cream was great but the view was wonderful :)

Who in the world doesn't love a good ice cream sundae, malt maybe? How about a milkshake? Whatever your ice cream vice this is the place to get your fix. Friendly staff and access to all the chocolate your heart desires....

While the inside of this restaurant is cute and almost diner like in appearance, I'd suggest trying to find a seat on the balcony because you get an amazing view of the water. We sat out there close to sunset and watched the water hitting the rocks and it was gorgeous.

The food is kind of expensive. (Some ice cream snacks topped $10!) If you're on a budget, consider getting a cone for about $5 a person instead of a sundae.) The ambiance makes it worth it.
