What is better than one dessert? Two desserts in one! The best ice cream sandwiches in Los Angeles.
Late night sweet cravings? Ice cream sandwich to your liking! Pick 2 cookies and the ice cream you want between!
The robust, aromatic flavors of Mashti Malone's scoops would overpower almost any cookie, so instead of trying to out-muscle flavors like rosewater saffron or the perfumey lavender, the ice cream institution sticks to crisp wafers for its sandwich base.
Macaron ice cream sandwiches, whoever invented was brilliant. My favorite is the red velvet. This is the kind of ice cream you don't mind eating when it's still cold outside.
You can never go wrong with their salted caramel and peanut butter with brownie. If you don't live on the westside, it's a bit of a drive, but well worth the headache of LA traffic.
The food is really, really good, I would suggest that you start with the furikake kettle corn. Food can tend to be on the pricey side a bit but the atmosphere is good and the communal seating is a great way to talk to people.
The now bi-coastal Coolhaus takes the old Diddy Reese mix-and-match model and applies it to fancy flavor combinations of cookies (like brioche, lemon rosemary, and maple waffle white chocolate) and 'scream (we're crazy for carrot cake batter, dirty mint chip, and balsamic fig and mascarpone.)
Buttery smooth ice cream, resplendent with deep caramel and packed onto two near-perfect wafer-thin cookies.
Choose-your-own-adventure ice cream sandwich experience. Cookie flavors tend toward the simple (think double chocolate, snicker doodle, chocolate chip); while the ice creams run the gamut from old fashioned coffee or green tea to the more ambitious options like the exceptionally velvety, subtle Tennessee Whiskey and the apple pie.
The Key Lime Cowabunga (top) layers impressively tart ice cream between two nobbly coconut oatmeal cookies, creating a pie à la mode experience in a portable package. The Surf City Classic is simplicity at its finest—salt-kissed chewy brownie cookies with a dollop of light, silky vanilla. The perfect creamy respite after a day in the sun (and now available at the brand new Market at Santa Monica Place.)
