“BEST ICE CREAM EVER!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Truly the best ice cream we've ever had. Mcconnels had great service,atmosphere, and of course ice cream! The place had a great location. I would definitely recommend having the cookie dough ice cream in a chocolate cone. Overall, if you are passing by Santa Barbra or just seeing the Mission I would definitely recommend stopping at McConnells ice cream.

“Superb Ice Cream”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Right to the point. Bare bones decor gives way to sunny and fun service staff who will let you try the many incredible flavors of ice cream available. Rich, delicious ice cream that you will miss when you're not there.

“Excellent employee s”
Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

Mary was working behind the counter when my girlfriend and I arrived. She let us sample plenty of flavors and was very friendly and helpful. The ice cream was wonderful as well. (How can you beat it?) I highly recommend the sweet and salty one (can't remember the name of f the to p of my head. )

“No better ice cream”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

This is Mecca for ice cream aficionados. We loved the salted caramel which was rich, smooth, and creamy. It was especially good as a hot fudge sundae. Other notable flavors are the cinnamon, orange chocolate, rocky road, and peppermint. In fact, you can't go wrong here. Large scoops, too. Don't let the small parking lot or increase in belt size discourage you. If ice cream is your dessert of choice, don't ever pass up McConnells.

I had the hardest time deciding on a flavor... Thankfully they are very understanding when I kept asking to try multiple flavors :)
