WHERE TO FIND THE BEST ICE CREAM IN LA

We LOVE ice cream. Every time we visit a new city we are always on the look out for the perfect scoop. During our short stay in Los Angles we have to admit we were tempted more than once and found some amazing ice cream shops we have to share with you all.

Here are our favourite ice creameries in LA you need to try this summer.

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams

Jeni’s is not only decorated beautifully, but the ice cream here is delicious. You can sample as many as you like before you choose a flavour, served on little metal spoons. We recommend trying the waffle cone with a scoop of Milkiest Chocolate & a scoop of Nadali Estate Vanilla Bean.

Scoops

If you are the adventurous type and looking for some unique ice cream flavours you need to head to Scoops. From salted oreo and vegan cookies & cream to pizza and burger flavour – Scoops has it all. We highly recommend trying the Brown Bread flavour.

712 N Heliotrope Dr

Diddy Reise

Looking for a cheap, amazing ice cream sandwich? For $2 you can get two freshly baked cookies and a giant scoop of creamy ice cream plopped in the middle. Be prepared for a line as it is right near UCLA, but it is worth the wait!

McConnell’s

These guys are the ice cream experts. Serving ice cream for over 70 years, they make all their ice cream in Santa Barbara at The Old Dairy with no substitutes, fillers or additives. They have some incredible flavours, and we would not be surprised if you run into a celebrity or two during your visit. Cheeky tip: You can get 2 flavours per scoop!

Sweet Rose Creamery

Using organic ingredients and local farmers market produce, Sweet Rose Creamery create the perfect blend of ice cream. With a bunch of homemade flavours from ice cream, sorbets and dairy free flavours – this place is the perfect Sunday afternoon outing.
