“Dinner!”

Marianne's Ice Cream
Ranked #1 of 3 Dessert in Aptos
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed 7 October 2018

When I feel a bit rebellious and think that having icecream for dinner will not hurt, I swing by Marianne's Ice Cream in Aptos. Ice cream in hand, I take the short walk to watch the sunset over the Monterey Bay. It is a perfect end (beginning or middle) of a day!

A local ice cream maker is a Santa Cruz staple with a storefront in Aptos. This location has all the flavors, limited indoor and outdoor seating and offers take home pints and quarts. Coffee and espresso drinks also available.

They have an amazing selection of ice creams and very nice people taking the orders. We got snickerdoodle, oatmeal raison, and rainbow sherbet -- all were really good.

This is by far the best ice cream in the world! It's home made with TLC yes tender loving care... The Watermelon is seasonal and I wish I could eat it everyday because it's so good. Friendly staff and great location a short walk to the beach. This is a must in Santa Cruz area,,, yum yum

Lots to take in with so many flavors. The staff is very nice and give out tastes to help you make up your mind. Get a cone and find a spot to sit and enjoy you ice cream and people watch.
Tip: The shop can get very busy. There is NO LINE! Take a number at the end of the counter. The staff gets busy and don't always tell you to get a number.
