After entering and immediately leaving every other ice cream shop on Cannery Row because they were all filthy, this was a breath of fresh air! Delicious ice cream, exceptionally polite wait staff and the delicious smell of chocolate wafting through the shop. They even give...More

Whenever we are in the US we have to visit a Ghirardellis! Wish they were in the UK. Daughter had a brownie, which was just delicious and son had a thick chocolate shake. Scrummy! And free chocolate squares on arrival, we love that, such a...More

This place is super clean considering how many tourists are coming in and out. The sundaes were good, and we lucked out and got a great little view of the bay and an otter out on their back patio.
