Yummy ice cream served from a 1950's style storefront. The long line is worth the wait for the frozen goodies! Most servings we saw were enough for a couple to share. Big servings. A must visit place!

My first time there the ice cream was wonderful but my husbands was crystalized as if it had thawed and then been refrozen. The second time there my ice cream was crystalized . It still tastes okay but not the right consistency. Not sure if there is a way to make sure you avoid this, other than asking for a... More

If you like "old time" malts or ice cream this is a must stop. They have a real jukebox with controllers on each table and use the old green mix-masters to whip up the malts. My mouth is watering as I write the review . . .

Yum, yum, yum! We went 4 times on vacation, due to how good the flavors were, the freshness of the waffle cones, and the size of the scoops. The prices are acceptable for a vacation resort town, as well. I had the Mocha, very strong choc with coffee flavor, the Coffee, much milder flavor, the chocolate Mint, a very strong... More

Awesome little Shop not far from Del on the strip; good ice cream, better ambiance. Good luck finding a place to sit on warm nights! Kids favorite was a cookie ice cream sandwhich. As with everything on Coronado, it's a bit pricey, and long lines at night and on warm days. Would return mostly for the memories the kids have... More

This place has fantastic ice cream sundaes. I ordered the PB one which had two kinds of ice cream, some PB, PB cups, and the standard whipped cream, sprinkles, and cherry. The ice cream was delicious and I would definitely go back.

Went here with my family and we got great service first of all, two very kind ladies helped us choose between what felt like a million different flavors. We even got to sample as many as we wanted! I went with a Golden Monkey sundae, which was absolutely delicious and very creamy. My mom had scoops of ice cream in... More

The shop is clean and well lit. They have an excellent assortment of ice cream flavors. It is not cheap but worth it for an island experience.

Thank Scott M

A brick & mortar neighborhood institution, MooTime Creamery has been serving up America's favorite dessert to locals and tourists alike for the last 15 years. From Double Dark Chocolate to Stracciatella, the locally owned, '50s style shop provides Coronado with premium handcrafted ice cream, sorbet, yogurt and hand-rolled waffle cones all made fresh daily with the highest quality ingredients. MooTime first opened on Orange Avenue in 1998. Churning out ice cream in a fun, nostalgic atmosphere, the local favorite has seen such stars as Magic Johnson, Jason Alexander, Mandy Moore and Cuba Gooding Jr. come through its doors to enjoy a MooTime treat. MooTime serves a variety of old-fashioned delights from floats and sodas to sundaes and splits. Catering is also available, with a list of options including ice cream bars, float bars and hot fudge bars, taking all of the fun and flavor offsite.
