    Best ice cream in Santa Barbara! The sorts of flavors this place excels at are things with salt, things with caramel, things with coffee, and things with peanut butter. Also, homemade waffle cones!

    Fantastic ice cream. Each of us tried a different flavor and all were exceptional. Note: "a scoop" is BIG. We saw the "flight" option too late: 3 mini-scoops of 3 different flavors... DO THAT!

    Take a break from the wine flights for the best flight of ice cream in SB! The peanut butter chip with strawberry in a cone was like the best version of a pb&j.

    So. Good. I'm pretty sure you can get any flavor and it'll be delicious. Got the single with two flavors and it was huge!

    Incredible texture! Can't remember the name, but the one with sweet cream + salt + cookie pieces is one of the best flavors I've ever tried. We went there three times in two days.

    Always packed so we had to try it. You can try the flavors before deciding which is good because some flavors are very extraordinary but delicious

    The perfect creaminess! Get a trio– my favorites together are chocolate covered strawberries + sea salt cream & cookies + dutchman's chocolate. Be sure to try their seasonal flavors.

    The ice cream is the best I've ever had. The cookies and cream and the salted caramel chip flavors are amazing, and the workers and atmosphere are family-friendly.

    Best ice cream in southern Cali. Everything is good. Try the Brazilian Coffee and the double chocolate.

    Everything seems good here. Long queues say it all. Could not try all flavors, but I can tell all of them must be good.

    LOVED the sea salt and cookies! Ask for a split scoop if you're indecisive. I split mine with churros con leche.

    Blueberries and Cream, also when they have it, the swedish gingersnaps and cardamon. As everyone else says do the Flight.

    Lots of choices. Get a "flight" so you can have three different flavors.

    If you tell them you've never been before, they'll give you free samples of their top flavors. Undecided? Get the flight!

    The McConnell's shops are each independently owned. This one is definitely worth finding parking and walking a few blocks.

    The code for the rest room is 531. Pop quiz: name a city with the area code of 531... Bellevue, Columbus, Fremont, Hastings, La Vista, Lincoln, Norfolk, Omaha, Papillion, Nebraska.

    Silver lining of standing in an epic line at McConnell's: more time to spend smelling fresh waffle cones being made.

    This location has excellent baked goods. Try the chocolate chunk with sea salt or the thin mint.

    Anything in a waffle cone. Get it quick because they tend to run out later in the day.
