We visited for a late afternoon snack of a “different “ kind! We were allowed to taste a variety of flavors before deciding! The choices were so varied and unique! That being said the vanilla was absolutely delicious!!

We visited the Larchmont location and had several tastes before settling on Rose Petal Raspberry and Lemon Poppyseed. Wonderful flavors and they change daily.

Went there with our grandchildren. Enjoyable. Nothing particularly special about the ice cream or service, but pleasant outing. Eating outside on benches is typical.

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
