“Amazing late night snack!”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We were looking for a late night snack and happen about Ghirardelli Ice Cream. I love milkshakes so this was perfect. The wait was a little long as it was a very nice night out and the place was busy. It was worth the wait though. The ice cream tasted amazing.

“Always good”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

If you like ice cream then this is the place for you. We lived in California for six years and I swear that out of all the things there were to love, this is what my husband misses most!

“Awesome American Style Sundae”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

We stopped by every night before we head back to hotel. And my kid like the friendly server and free chocolate most!

“Rock n Roll post race reward”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

What could be better than a huge Ghirardelli Hot Fudge Sundae as a reward surviving a marathon? Free samples of their best chocolates make the short wait even sweeter.

“Seriously just an everyday sundae”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

The product couldn't look any mor different than the picture unless you didn't use ice cream at all. I mean this is ice cream so it's still tasty.. But for $9 bucks it should be more than average. I won't pay that again. Go for the chocolate squares and pick up a half gallon of Safeway brand and some sauce on the way home. You won't know the difference.
