Wonderful custard, quirky flavor selections and even custard flavors for the pups! Great spot in Del Ray.

This place has good custard and other treats, sure, but be aware that there are little kids everywhere--hitting things, touching everything, jumping, screaming, yelling. Not a place I want to go back to.

What can I say, I'm a fan. The treats are always enjoyable, although I guess I should try to watch my waistline.

Treats that can't be beat. Not the run of the mill ice cream shop. These treats are extra special. Don't let the line deter you It's long because it is that good not because it's slow service, the line actually moves pretty fast.
