I came in and the place was tiny and crowded. A number system and CASH ONLY signs all over the place. Heard two customers complaining about the licorice ice cream not being black anymore (I love black licorice). I sampled what they replaced it with (white), and it was okay, but would have liked to try the black --just because. The menu offered pie ala mode, but only pecan or apple. Decided on the Oregon Blackberry & lemon custard flavors in a cup. The Blackberry was purple, not the streaked kind I am used to. Lemon custard did nothing for me;I trashed it after a few tastes.

We came here for a quick ice cream cone and ended up having a YUMMY hot fudge sundae and hanging out in this adorable restaurant. the ice cream is delicioous and the wait staff is freindly and helpful.
And!!!
There''s parking!!! Which is a plus when you just want a quick cone.
Grab a treat and head over to State Park!
Enjoy!

Amazing! They have cool and interesting flavors. Unlike typical ice cream places that appeal to kids, Marianne’s has a variety of high quality ice cream flavors you would see in a restaurant, local fruit flavors, and flavors for kids.

They also have sugar free ice cream, sorbet, and spumoni. Service is decent and bathrooms are clean.

Marianne’s ice cream is delicious! I quickly devoured my Pralines & Cream scoops in a waffle cone. (Scoops, plural, yep!) The staff was super friendly at both locations (Santa Cruz and Aptos), and they were great about us taste-tasting different flavors. Just be sure to pull a number when you first walk in!
