“Yum - Ice Cream”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

You can't beat the ice cream sundae's or the Chocolate that you get here! It might be a long wait but it is so worth it. Make sure you grab a few extra napkins and be ready to sit down and really enjoy the treat!
Once you have ordered - you can find spoons, napkins and such around the corner to your left - it's also a great place to hang out waiting for your number to be called - you tend to stay clear of the other folks who are waiting for their number to be called. We usually head outdoors and try to find a table a bit away from there - often by the band stand so we can enjoy some music/entertainment while enjoying the ice cream. This is a MUST for those who like ice cream! You can also get a free piece of chocolate if you stop in the candy shop! Yum!

“FREE Chocolate for everyone at Ghirardelli's!”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

Seriously, where else can you get free chocolate samples? Different flavors daily. We always buy a bag (or two) to take back with us. Our personal favorite is now Milk Sea Salt (and with almonds). What a great combination!

Take a nice break and grab some chocolates (your children will love you forever). Oh, and the ice cream shop is great too. Enjoy!

“Busy but service quick.”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

This place was packed out and people everywhere. Eat in, let them bring your order to the table. Way better than standing in the long "to go" line! Dark chocolate sundae is to die for!

“Chocolate lovers paradise!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

You can smell the chocolate before you even walk in the door. You know it's good when you see the lines of people waiting! it is worth the wait. Peppermint bark samples will have you buying a bagful in no time! The hot chocolate is really good on a cool evening, but the brownies were a little heavy!
