“Trying too hard”

The Penny Ice Creamery
Ranked #11 of 20 Dessert in Santa Cruz
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Went to Penny Ice Creamery over the weekend with a group of friends. Now I love ice cream but this place was really a stretch for me. They had a limited number of flavors (maybe 12) and most were not appealing to me. Beet Hibiscus flavor, really? How about bitter caramel? Now, if you like this kind of off-the-wall flavor, want glutton free cones, etc., you are their target audience. But not me or the group I was with. I tried the fresh mint chip. The flavor was okay but not very rich and creamy. I only ate half the cone, which I never do. Service was meh. I'll try a different place next time I am in Santa Cruz.
