It was a happening place, had some great flavors. Could use some more seating but other than that we enjoyed the ice cream very much.

their flavors are unique and delicious, but the lines were often too long! Love the olive brittle flavor, weird & delicious!

Recommended to us by an Australian living in LA that we met in a shared Uber (you never know who you'll meet). We actually had the icecream at the Disneyland outlet, but it was really yummy.

Simply one of the best ice cream places I tried in my life. The flavors ingenuity is impressive I have to say, and the ice cream is just delicious. I recommend the salted caramel flavor highly. Great place, friendly staff. Excellent overall.

I came to try this ice cream, merely because of the crowd by it. It had many interesting flavours but was a bit confusing as a visitor.

My second visit to a S&S and I cant praise it enough. The employee was so gracious allowing us to sample as many flavors as we wanted. My wife missed out on sampling flavors on our first visit due to kids and he was utterly...More

Brilliant ice cream, with some very weird flavours. They let you try before you buy which helps with flavours like Turkey and Stuffing on the menu! I recommend the Sea Salt and Caramel flavour.

Loved the ice cream. It's busy most of the time and I'm not willing to drive around to find parking & then wait in line for 45 minutes to buy ice cream. There are other special ice cream shops in the area.

Really unique, incredible flavors. Generous sampling allowed. Line sometimes is wrapped around the place, worth the wait.

I had the salted caramel cone and ONG ot was delish! Love the little descriptions they give about each of the flavours too. Would certainly go back and recommend to anyone in the local area 😉

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it

Small-batch, chef-driven ice cream made by hand with local ingredients since 2011. We hope you love it!
