“Kaleidoscope provides an oasis to Ice Cream fanatics!”
Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

Hot weather + Sweet tooth = Ice Cream! My hot fudge sundae was the perfect combination, including whipped cream and a cherry on top at no extra charge. Did I mention the hot fudge was actually hot and applied with a ladle, not a squirt bottle? Ice Cream done right!

“Cool treat on a hot day.”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Stopped to get a cool treat. The place was pretty crowded, but the staff was friendly. The portions were small, but priced accordingly. They had several unique flavors like More Cowbell, Trashcan, and Daquiri Ice.

“Nice break on a HOT day!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

We visited in the late afternoon and were the only customers at that time. Enjoyed ice cream and tried the "Texas Toothpicks' as a side with a Chicken Strip order. I had no idea what the toothpicks were. Come to find out, they are battered & deep fried tiny pepper skin strips. When ordering an ice cream sundae or banana royale, you can choose any flavor of ice cream. Be adventurous and stay away from plain old vanilla! Service was good. Prices on the chicken strip basket (7.99) seemed high. You can eat inside at one of the few tables or outside on the patio. Nothing fancy.

“American Food at a Fun Stop”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

We had two cheese burgers, fries, fried pickles, and 2 small cups of ice cream. I was very surprised that the burgers and side were fairly good. Carlsbad has very limited options when it come to food and I would recommend a stop here. They have about twenty different types of ice cream and yogurt and both of our choices were good. Great place to rest and have a fun bit to eat.

“good on a hot day!”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Nice local favorite for many years it looks like. Good for a real hot day! Don't make their own ice cream and the floors were just filthy. Won't go back except on a real hot day!
