    The place that brought good ice cream to LA! Brown Bread is their signature, but Salty Oreo is my favorite. There are new flavors popping up in the rotation, and always at least one dairy-free option

    Cash only. Their ice cream is rich in flavor, creamy yet very light in texture. 2 scoops are big n $3.25. I prefer a bit more thicker n solid texture ice, yet not bad.

    Easily the best ice cream in L.A. Go outside your comfort zone & order a ricotta/honey/butterfinger combo or something that equally doesn't sound like it would go together. You won't be disappointed.
