We picked up ice-cream and the pharmacy next door and noticed the ice cream place -- delicious choice. Although we normally get ice-cream while walking the boardwalk I'm so glad we caught this location as the ice-cream really was good and choices were abundant. I...More

My family and I really enjoyed ice cream here on our recent trip to LA. My favorite was the banana cream pie and chocolate malt ice cream. Yummy!

Because they make all of their ice cream on site, it has a thick, creamy texture almost like gelato. They have a multitude of flavors from which to choose. My personal favorites are chocoholic chunk and peanut butter chocolate. This is seriously the best ice...More

Since 1945 Handel's Homemade Ice Cream & Yogurt is made fresh every day on the premises. We use products, equipment, methods and recipes exclusive only to Handel's. Each batch is made in freezers specifically designed to create Handel's distinctively smooth and creamy texture.

Our philosophy is to use the best ingredients available, and always in abundance.

WE NEVER SKIMP! Handful after handful of fresh nuts, creamy caramel, rich dark chocolate, fresh fruits or marshmallows are poured into individual batches as they are drawn from the machine. This exemplifies the special care given to preserve the whole identity, flavor, and quality of each premium ingredient used. Handel's truly enjoys a rich history and a tradition of excellence.

What makes Handel's so good? Plenty of T.L.C. goes into every scoop!
