The manhattan beach creamery is a sweettooth's dream! With a full ice cream counter, candy counter, gourmet cookies, ice cream sandwiches, caramel apples and amazing novelty candy variety, this spot cannot be beat! The service is fast and friendly, so don't be turned off by the longish lines. Check it out! Definitely mrsiss (and mrsiss sweettooth) approved!!

WOW - this place is decadent. I dropped just $5.25 for a delicious Rocky Road/Butter Pecan milkshake, and I'm still dreaming about it. Cute little shop with very friendly counter girls. 3 scoops of ice cream in the milkshake was a real treat (literally!)

If you see a line outside the door, it typically is an indication that you have happened upon a food treat. This place did not disappoint. Huge variety to choose from inside. I'd highly recommend a Creamwich ice cream sandwich.

If you will brunch, lunch or dinner at Manhattan Beach DO NOT ASK FOR DESSERT. In Manhattan beach, the Manhattan Beach Creamery is a MUST. I wont lie to you, it is not cheap but you can find great desserts and excellent ice cream. Carrot cupcake is one of the best things you will find, also a donnut-type with ice... More

As we sat enjoying our ice cream, one of our group commented that it was going to be hard going to another beach as she was certain there would not be an ice cream shop this nice near it. There are many, many choices but the only thing I will ever have is the oatmeal and raisin cream sandwich, so... More

If you have kids, or are still a kid at heart, and ever made a trip to a small town ice cream parlor / candy store, you'll love this place. It's a must visit if you ever spend a day in Manhattan Beach.

I walked in just thinking this was an ice cream shop, but it's so much more! They offer homemade truffles and chocolates, cupcakes, candy, and build your own ice cream cookie sandwiches. Offers a wide selection of homemade ice cream flavors you can taste test, also frozen yogurt and sorbet.

This is an old fashioned ice cream parlor with freshly made ice cream and other great treats. When you walk in it feels like walking into an ice cream parlor in the 1960s. There are jars of candies everywhere as well as freshly made cupcakes and chocolates. I always keep it simple, a dish of great pistachio ice cream with... More
