Always a pleasure having a sundae or a chocolate shake at Ghiradelli's! The kids loved it of course.

After a long walk, we needed a snack. This shop features many of Ghiradelli's products including ice cream. It's located in a building adjacent to Steinbeck Plaza. I had a one scoop cone of chocolate ice cream for around $5 which was good, but expensive. Seating is available inside as well as outside.

You stand in line to order which is fine and then wait for your name to be called. They only call it once and no one is willing to make eye contact. If you miss your name, you will find yourself with melted ice cream. Workers this day seemed to be put out if you asked questions. Ice cream had... More

We sat outside overlooking the beach and watched a sea lion rolling around on the sand underneath the balcony. Fabulous location and fabulous ice cream.

This Ghirardelli is basically the same as the one in SF but without the horrendous lines. It has the same exact sundae menu so my husband got his usual sundae and I got the Crissy field. Any sundae here always tastes fantastic and is at your table quickly. However, come here on an empty stomach otherwise you won't be able... More

What a lovely place to enjoy hot cocoa during the windy cold weather. We sat on the balcony on the back side of the store which has sweeping views of the nice bay, rocks, pier, wildlife, and kayakers rowing along the coast. A very romantic and happy spot for couples and family. We just loved enjoying the outdoor setting of... More

....which is a good thing because they are sticking with a tried and tested formula that works. Yes, the milk shakes and sundaes are expensive but by gum they are good. Well worth a treat on a hot day. Try and get a table outside so you can shlurp your milkshake looking over the bay.

What an amazing milk shake to relish to cool & refresh ourselves after roaming the town for over a couple of hours. Our foursome had ordered chocolate milk shake by the name "Nob Hill Chill" which was simply out of the world & amazingly mouthwatering & tasty. This was our third visit to this place as earlier we had been... More

Great selection of good ( but not great) chocolate. Very expensive but hey, you are on vacation. Good outdoor dining seaside but a bit chilly as it is in the shade.
