“Choose your Moment or Patiently Wait”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

Every time I visit SC, I always land here. As I think of where else or what else to do, I keep Marianne's in the rotation. That way, hopefully I've picked my late afternoon time, and I won't be Patiently Waiting at the weekend nightly cue.

“So yummy!”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

Excellent ice cream! "Heaven" is aptly named. Vanilla ice cream with fudge, peanut butter and brownie chunks. Oh my. Be prepared to wait a while. It's worth it!

“Best ICE CREAM EVER!”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

I have been going to Marianne's ICE Cream for over 10 years. This place is monumental to Santa Cruz. Many flavors to choose from! you have to try Northern Oregon Blackberry. Best Ice Cream Flavor in the WORLD!

“Most wonderful ice cream in tacky setting”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

The decor is a bit tattered, the crowds big on a summer weekend, but the wait is worth it for this fabulous ice cream, try the Highway 17 flavor ( aka rocky road).

“Crowded, but great ice cream!”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

Unfortunately when I was there it was also graduation weekend in Santa Cruz! Therefore, it was very crowded! You take a number when you go in, and luckily it was a reasonable amount of time to wait. If you like banana, the banana ice cream is amazing! You can tell that they make all of their ice cream!
