Amazing ice cream and love the friendly staff, excellent service, and such cool flavors. The cantaloupe, lavender, banana, and coffee are the best!! My son loved the strawberry sorbet. Can't wait to go back.

We were told about this little ice cream shop by friends who have a cabin in Santa Cruz. It happened to be just 2 blocks walk down from our hotel, The Comfort Inn. Incredible!!! The had flavors like Rootbeer Float, Oregon Blackberry Pie, Mud Pie (coffee ice cream, walnuts, and brownies). So delicious!! Their brownie sundae was incredible!!!! The frest nuts were so delicious! We went 2 days in a row. It is CASH ONLY however, so go prepared, and after the morning, it is pretty packed. Don't plan on getting there in the evening if you are in a hurry!!! Also, the staff is so accommodating!!

I am not an ice cream eater, but one just HAS to stop at Marianne's! It has 104 flavors and has been in business for 50 years! The place is small but the service is friendly and the ice cream divine! I went twice in one month! :)

Me and my husband stopped in to get ice cream so many choices of flavors and big scoops defiantly worth the stop. I would absolutely go again.

Stop by on our way to Monterey from San Francisco. The shop was easy to find. We were stumped by the many flavors of ice cream and choice of cones. We had mud pie, green leaf tea, pink lemonade and mint chip. It was so good we queue up for second round. A great pit stop for kids on the drive to Monterey.
