The ice cream tasted wonderful but it is pricy for the amount. They offer some "flavors of the day" or they can make just about any flavor and treats in it.

Pretty cool process. Starting with naturally sourced raw ingredients, they whip up the ice cream in a machine called BRN using liquid nitrogen.

I tried the “Tcao” which is their chocolate. It was very creamy with a medium density. It reminded me of chocolate mousse ice cream-slightly more cocoa flavor with mild sweetness and certainly thicker than a mousse.

I finished it off with the recommended toppings: roasted almonds and spiced caramel. The combination was really good.

They only offer a few flavors per day and you can’t get mixed scoops. It was pretty expensive - the second smallest ran me $8 but it was a perfect size.

I enjoyed the freshness and flavors. Will visit again.

We visited this place after touring the Winchester House (it is within walking distance). There is ample outside seating. The ice cream was excellent and there are some very interesting flavors to choose from (and mix and match!). I and the boys had waffle cones, and the wife had a bowl. Nobody was disappointed. Spendy, but nice on a warm day out. Recommended!

Freshly churned to order ice cream.
Nothing but milk, sugar, flavors... no gums or stabilizers needed.
Worth a try, but be prepared for a price tag that is a little higher than what you would expect for ice cream.

The options here are very unique and interesting. The ice cream is delicious and the cones are very good too but it was way too overpriced. 6 dollars for a small cone!
