I love ice cream and this is a great stop in Santa Cruz. I highly recommend the 4 scoop mini sampler. The flavors choices fit all types profiles. We really enjoyed the pumpkin, Turkish coffee, salted caramel, and the banana with chocolate peanut butter cookie mash. Great place.

The ice cream here is top quality, with a large number of inventive flavors, free samples galore, and delicious house-made waffle cones. I love their mini scoops -- perfectly sized for a relatively guilt/-free treat!

Amazing scoops, amazing ice cream, amazing peanut butter homemade cookie. I loved this small town and this place is amazing. The staff with piercings and short hair is a great staff.

Dave and his local crew know how to serve up the best and most interesting ice cream ! Service is always great and with a smile...not something you always get in SC. The vanilla (POV)is so good !

Had the best strawberry ice cream I've ever tasted here. They use in-season fruits so the ice cream really tasted like a strawberry. Turkish coffee was amazing too. I only wished for dark chocolate peanut butter. Service was friendly and efficient.

Wonderful ice cream made from 100% natural ingredients. Absolutely nothing artificial-no artificial flavors, colors, or additives. Tastes splendid! A wide variety of traditional and seasonal flavors. I was surprised by the reasonable prices. The milkshakes were superb! The serving staff were very helpful, letting me look at the binder that had a list of every ingredient for every ice cream....

We were looking for a place to get. A bit of one cream after a light dinner. It was later in the evening and we checked out Mission Hill. The wait person was great with the kids, taking enough time for samples. They have a good variety of flavors and the ice cream is very creamy. Prices per cone are... More

Service was slow, but there was a new person being trained, so I'm not sure if that's normal. The ice cream was worth the wait!

If you want some good ice cream and are willing to pay for it, this is the place to go. The selection is not very great but you can taste before you make your choice. Next time I will come by I will go there again
