For the price of one scoop, ya can go to Von's and get a half gallon of Safeway Chocolate Ice Cream. It's an occasional treat, as my Doctor is right next door. Various flavors and it's ALL YUMMY!! Four Claws UP!!!! Thanks. "Joe The Bear" / Local Redondo Beach Review

This is a great place to stop for a scoop or two of ice cream. Great flavors and they offer discount days on double scoop cones- was tuesday when I visited. You can sample flavors to help your decision I checked and there is unfortunately only one location in the entire state of Florida- but that's a start.

Because they make all of their ice cream on site, it has a thick, creamy texture almost like gelato. They have a multitude of flavors from which to choose. My personal favorites are chocoholic chunk and peanut butter chocolate. This is seriously the best ice cream I've had in the states! The scoops are very generous, and you can mix... More

We love Handel's and almost wish we had not tried it because it is so good and we come way too often. :) The line is usually long unless you come 3pmish on a weekday. However, the line is worth the wait and it usually goes pretty quickly because they are usually adequately staffed to accommodate the customers. Tuesdays is... More

Thanks so much for your review. We appreciate your business. We are now offering some coconut milk flavors and our new strawberry sorbet is delicious. During the week from 2:30 to 3:30 the lines can be busy because the kids get out of school and come directly to us. Probably after next week is when this will be in full... More

I have never had to stand in line for ice cream at 9pm, but did. Well worth it! I tried the sampler with chocholic chunk, vanilla, a coconut flavor and the orange and cream. They were all good. You don't go into this establishment, you order at a window. Great concept. I would think with all the flavors and what... More

Handel's ice cream is hands down the best. Expect a line and be patient. My favorite, blueberry cobbler. Worth the wait♡

Thank you for the fabulous Handel's Ice Cream review. Banana Cream Pie was always the top flavor in the past, however, I believe Graham Central Station is running a close second. Looking forward to serving you in the future. Q. and Paul Danylik Owners, Handel's Ice Cream More

We were staying next door at the Best Western and decided to check out this place. I got a single scoop of the Snappy Turtle which was chocolate ice cream, drizzled with caramel and pecans. It was so good! Plus one scoop here is like 3 scoops anywhere else. Large portions!
