    While everything in this place is pretty mouth-watering, sample a few of their seasonal flavors like cherry almond, balsamic strawberry or Sonoma honey. Then just get all of them in one cone. Read more

    If you can't handle the line, skip ahead to the soft serve counter. But a cone of Ricanelas is so worth the wait.

    Salted caramel & strawberry balsamic! Also black sesame and strawberry coconut. Honey lavender was too soap-y or maybe it was just a bad combo & needs to be enjoyed on its own

    Good ice cream. But if lines are long it's not worth the hype Mitchell's and Joe's are other good options that aren't as crowded and cheaper.

    the black sesame is an absolute must have - it's basically black sesame soup (a chinese dessert) in ice cream form!

    Creme brûlée, ricanelas, and banana are amazing. Try the award-winning salted caramel, even if it's too salty for my taste. Sad the brown sugar isn't coming back!

    Always try the seasonal flavored. Malted vanilla is very good - it isn't just vanilla. Has peanut brittle, yum! Expect a line, but it moves quickly and is worth it.

    Oh my lanta! Wednesday's soft serve flavors - peanut butter and banana are amazing. Flavors get a bit lost as a swirl so perhaps enjoy separately. Soft serve window opens at 3pm on weekdays.
