This historic location of the Ghirardelli Chocolate Factory still has an ice cream shop with plenty of chocolate options, even though they no longer offer factory tours. They do have a few chocolate making machines for you to look at and some history. You can also watch them make hot cocoa, waffle cones and bowls, as well as your ice cream creations. We have enjoyed the Gold Rush (Vanilla ice cream with freshly homemade hot fudge and peanut butter throughout. Perfectly topped with whipped cream, chopped almonds, a cherry and a Ghirardelli SQUARES® Milk Chocolate). It is very rich and perfect for sharing. The Nob Hill Chill (More than a milkshake, it's the sundae you can sip! Two scoops of vanilla ice cream blended with our freshly homemade hot fudge and topped with semi-sweet chocolate chips) is also a nice treat. The prices are a bit high for just ice cream, but you do get a decent portion and the famous Ghirardelli chocolate. You can just walk around a look, but you really should plan to get something cool. There is also many shops and food options in this mini mall.
