I travel to SoCal about once a month and am always looking for good eats. Handels sits in a little strip mall near Redondo Beach - completely unassuming. I believe Handels is a small chain but it operates like an independent. First, I'm not a...More

Whenever we travel to Redondo Beach, we have to visit this ice cream shop. (If there is a line out front, do not be deterred; it is worth the wait!) The house made ice cream is a premium quality and the flavor varieties are wonderful!...More

Yes, very often you will find a line but it goes quickly and there's a big pay-off at the end: the most delicious homemade ice cream in a world of flavors (except rocky road, which I find odd.) What makes it good is that they...More

Since 1945 Handel's Homemade Ice Cream & Yogurt is made fresh every day on the premises. We use products, equipment, methods and recipes exclusive only to Handel's. Each batch is made in freezers specifically designed to create Handel's distinctively smooth and creamy texture.

Our philosophy is to use the best ingredients available, and always in abundance.

WE NEVER SKIMP! Handful after handful of fresh nuts, creamy caramel, rich dark chocolate, fresh fruits or marshmallows are poured into individual batches as they are drawn from the machine. This exemplifies the special care given to preserve the whole identity, flavor, and quality of each premium ingredient used. Handel's truly enjoys a rich history and a tradition of excellence.

What makes Handel's so good? Plenty of T.L.C. goes into every scoop!
