The absolute BEST ice cream. Tuesday is a bargain day but there's always a long line so best to pay the price on another day. Many many flavors.

There is a line here from 3pm until closing at around 10pm and for good reason. While not inexpensive it is the best ice cream I have had in California and I eat a lot of ice cream!!

Welcome! Since 1945 Handel's Homemade Ice Cream & Yogurt is made fresh every day on the premises. We use products, equipment, methods and recipes exclusive only to Handel's. Each batch is made in freezers specifically designed to create Handel's distinctively smooth and creamy texture. Our philosophy is to use the best ingredients available, and always in abundance. WE NEVER SKIMP! Handful after handful of fresh nuts, creamy caramel, rich dark chocolate, fresh fruits or marshmallows are poured into individual batches as they are drawn from the machine. This exemplifies the special care given to preserve the whole identity, flavor, and quality of each premium ingredient used. Handel's truly enjoys a rich history and a tradition of excellence. What makes Handel's so good? Plenty of T.L.C. goes into every scoop!
