I know there are some great chocolates out there and yeah you can claim yours to be the best, but when you taste the creamy sense of this place nothing will ever rest on your tongue the same ever! I love to get the banana split with pineapples and fudge as well as caramel and strawberries with nuts, AWESOME!!!! is only being nice!!!! This place is the Best!!!

I have been to the one in San Francisco two times and I love their famous sundae! It's super delicious. As a european I think I can say that there is better chocolate than American chocolate but Ghirardelli is very good.
Usually you get 1$ discount with a coupon that you'll find in the San Diego or San Francisco Bay Magazin that you find at the airport for example.
Also you get very nice gift sets at Ghirardelli for your beloved ones back home!

Greeted with a piece of Ghirardelli chocolate as you decide on your chocolate and ice cream fix. Finally decided on the cookie bottom sundae & midnight revere sundae. Yum. They were large servings and probably should have just gotten one and split...but hey you only live once. Great friendly service in that "classic soda fountain shop" experience.
