Stopped in here after dinner for some ice cream, which is never a bad thing! I had the churro flavor, which had crunchy cinnamon bits in a creamy vanilla base. Heavenly. They were also making sandwiches with cookies, which looked A.MAZ.ING, but I was SO full from dinner.... This was excellent ice cream at a very reasonable price. If I... More

When walking through Berkeley I about stopped in my tracks when I saw the sign for Cream. To get a homemade chocolate chip cookie with ice cream between the two. Was an automatic stop and so worth it! You pick your cookies, type of ice cream you want in the middle and even the type of toppings you want around... More

Cream is a nice little place right by UC Berkeley dorms. It's affordable, lots of options. Their ice cream isn't the best but I like the variety and location. Expect long lines, however they do move along at a good pace.

My wife and I recently had ice cream at Cream in Berkeley. We did not order ice cream sandwiches, we simply had ice cream in a cup. I had the pistachio and the salted caramel and was moderately disappointed with both. My wife was also not very happy with her choices (one of which was also the salted caramel). It... More

One of the best gluten free cookies, and the peanut butter ice cream was amazing. No sherbet available, and expensive if you just want a small bowl.

We stopped off in Berkeley for a wander round the university campus and the shops on Telegraph Avenue and were in need of an afternoon snack. We had already spotted a cookie shop further up Telegraph Avenue and at a $1.20 for a cookie, I was tempted. Further down the street, I spotted Cream. For $2.99, we got a cookie... More

While touring U C Berkeley campus, we noticed the long line of this store. Later the day, we wanted to give it a try. Humh, interesting idea - mini cookies sandwich for $1.99. It was very flavorful and easy eating. Btw, friendly and helpful staff.

I love the idea of fresh ice cream sandwiches. You get to pick 2 fresh baked cookies (the same kind or different) and then choose a flavored ice cream (I loved cup o joe) then dip in sprinkles, chocolate chips, etc. It was a wonderful individualized concept. We live in Cape Cod and don't have any out here. Hope they... More

The line went so fast when I visited the place. I tried the red velvet cookies with cheesecake ice-cream, and the green tea latte ice-cream (I can not remember the cookie flavor) but it was all good!!! Totally recommended!
