I love Souza's Ice Cream! There freshly made cones are the best, and the ice cream is just perfect. The staff is always friendly, and the store is very clean.

Love this place. Small and quaint, the service is great and the waffle cones are very good. The choices are limited to about 16 flavors but they cover the bases and are good. Great place to take the kids

The lady behind the counter would only allow my teens one napkin each, and they were treated rudely. The could not touch the bowls until they paid, like they were going to ditch out and not pay. Just wrong. Never ever going back.....

My wife and I each ordered one scoop of ice cream. The lady serving us touched the ice cream when scooping mine. My wife asked for mini m&m's on top. The lady gave her gummies instead. When my wife said she wanted m&m's the lady poured the gimmes back into the container, with the Ice cream on it and put... More

We came in on a mid-summer September day and stood in the store for five minutes with no one at the counter. Finally a woman appeared from the back and and barked, "Do you know your order?". As we were telling her our order, she yelled at someone in the back, then tried to remember what we'd ordered. We left... More

We stopped by to grab some cones and shakes after walking around, and my son asked for a Cotton Candy shake we advised the gal many times that it tastes really plain and instead of taking it back and adding more flavor or maybe remaking another one, she told my aunt that she paid $5 and some cents and to...

Excellent ice cream with fast and friendly service. A place to sit down and enjoy a cold treat. A very quaint part of Capitola that completes a wonderful walking tour.

We were walking through Capitola on a very hot day. I thought it would be nice to stop and have an ice cream. I liked the fact that they made their own waffle cones. The girls liked the waffle cones. The ice cream was good too. I wasn't that impressed with the service. The woman behind the counter constantly kept... More

Not a local creamery, just Dreyer ice cream. Small stingy scoops for too much $. And not friendly service!

The shop is also dirty, i've been here before but my last time will be when the woman shoved one of her employees out of the way-that is not okay! never going back. she also over charged us that day 2 waffle cones+1 kids =...
