What could be more relaxing than sitting on the balcony and hearing the sounds of the ocean while devouring delicious ice cream sundaes of Ghirardelli?! Dig in!

$70 for two hot chocolates, two banana splits, a chocolate fudge sundae, an icecream with sprinkles and I dont even know what name was lent to the ice cream indulgence ordered by the final child in our party. Expensive, decadent, but a holiday treat. The chocolates in the shop were very tasty, especially the salted caramel creams. The terrace had... More

This is like every other Ghiradelli Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop ~ but if you like hot chocolate and it is a cold day - this will warm you up and delight your sweet tooth. A good place to bring the grandchildren for something fun to make the day a little extra special.

But didn't enjoy the hard sell. After telling the employee we were just looking around she continued to tell us the special offers etc. Maybe I was just tired after a long drive.... anything you could want in a chocolate store was there. Even had tables and chairs to sit and enjoy ice cream and other goodies

What I say about this Ghirardelli cafe must hold true of any (or most) Ghirardelli locations. If you are looking for really tasty and thick hot chocolate with cream, this is the place to be at. If you are looking for a place to have tasty and thick chocolate shake, this is the place. And if you want chocolate ice... More

Its hard to resist the wonderful smell of chocolate wafting out of this shop, so we stopped for sundaes. The menu wasn't terribly clear and the cashier wasn't interested in being helpful. She just wanted to keep the line moving. We initially ordered to go but thought it best to sit and enjoy the treat. My friend who ordered first... More

Lots of great ice cream treats to choose from and they all tasted good. The prices are definitely a little high, but we got fairly big servings for the price and couldn't have eaten more. The kids liked the free chocolate samples that they were handing out.
