Delicious, unique flavors and hand made organic cones. Lines are usually long, but it's worth it!

Definitely worth the lineup! Some of the tastiest ice cream (and definitely the most gorgeous tasting cone) I've ever had. The chocolate orange was to die for and the pink lemonade sherbet was nice too. Adorable staff.

the ice cream was to die for! what's not to love about a delicious cone with a chocolate surprise at the bottom? especially when it's soft and ganache-like! plus, the place itself is adorable. and they serve blue bottle. i will never visit oakland again without stopping here!

A little scoop of heaven in Berkeley. The choices change every day, but the ones we tried were all wonderful.

Best ice cream I have ever had! seasonal flavours and the classic vanilla and chocolate always offered. We opted for a bombe last time for a friend's birthday and it was just out of this world. There can certainly be evening queues with a on the same street so try go during the day if you are in a rush!

The Ice Cream was good but seems the service is kind of inefficient

You can tell something is going on right away when you drive by Ici. There is a LONG line out the door and down the street. ONly a handful of people can fit in the store at any given time. There is no seating - a bench and that is it. So you come in, order, and get out. They... More

It's not often that we get hot days in East Bay but when we do, I crave ice cream. Ici is the best as it is all organic and real ingredients. No artificial stuff loaded with sugar here. I always go for the spicy flavors with nuts. Recently we had spicy orange chocolate chip with sweetness followed by a spicy... More

Pretty much everytime I've driven by Ici over the years, there's been a line out the door. Today I finally went in with a couple of friends to see what the hype's all about. Well, first, the place is tiny so it's no surprise there's a line outside - you can only really fit 5 people in the place before... More

Hubby and I skipped dessert at Trattoria La Siciliana because we wanted try this place. We were surprised to see a long line for ice cream at almost 9pm. Skipping dessert was out of the question so we waited in line for about 20 minutes. They passed around a piece of paper indicating the flavors available that evening. A couple... More
