Ice cream so great we went back twice!. Flavors are amazing. Loved the Earl Grey with biscuits and the praline whiskey, while my husband loved the Turkish black coffee flavor and my sons the churro and dulce de leche flavors. The eureka lemon and moutainberry...More

I stopped for dinner on my way to Lompoc and found dessert calling. My friends husband mentioned this place so we jumped in the car and drove over joining the line outdoor. The wait was about 15 minutes but so with it. They focus on...More

Delightful welcoming to a first timer, the ice cream was delicious. Corner locale in a neighborhood setting, reminds me a bit like Spain. Excellent variety of choices, including non dairy ice cream. And a cozy patio to relax and savor the good things in life.

Sunday evening, plan on a long line - It's fun though. The flavors are creative, and you can taste as many as you wish. This is an expensive ice cream parlor. Two ice cream sundaes (huge!) were $25. The two guys who orders these could...More

Had the toffee crunch and the strawberry ice cream. The toffee crunch was rather bland, however the strawberry was excellent. Prices are reasonable, but the line can get long, especially in the evening!

My black coffee chip waffle cone hit the spot on a warm day. The ice cream itself isn't as creamy as you might expect but the flavor made up for the texture (meaning this is decent, tourist grade ice cream). Be prepared to pay at...More
