Imagine taking a bite. It’s cold, creamy and irresistible. Every bite is rewarding, tasty and rich. No matter how your day is going, it just got a little better. There are few things in life better than ice cream (and we want to emphasize VERY FEW). So, we want to say you’re welcome in advance as we bring to you the 5 absolute best must try bucket list ice cream shops in Los Angeles. (We ate a lot of ice cream but we didn’t mind)



7290 Beverly Blvd., West Hollywood; (323) 939-6455; and

1639 Silver Lake Blvd., Silver Lake, (323) 913-9911


Take a step into Milk and your glasses will start to fog up from excitement. Their goodies include: red velvet macaroons, shortcake, and drumsticks. And the best part, Make-your-own ice cream sandwich. But be warned your life might change forever. You’re welcome.


  1. Scoops

712 N. Heliotrope Drive, East Hollywood; (323) 906-2649


No, this isn’t heaven. But we don’t blame you, it’s pretty easy to get confused. With a rotating list with over 50 flavors, Monday through Saturday your prayers have been answered . Go to the light, you won’t be disappointed.


  1. Salt & Straw

240 N. Larchmont Blvd., Los Angeles; (323) 446-0485


Sometimes you just want your ice cream to be a little extra, we get it. Try an avocado and Ojai olive oil sherbet to fill your needs. Or have an ice cream flight if you don’t want to get hung up with commitment. Either way, you’ve come to the right place.  


  1. Long Beach Creamery

4141 Long Beach Blvd Long Beach, CA 90807; (562) 513-3493


They say you can’t buy happiness, but you can buy Long Beach Creamery’s ice cream, which is basically the same thing. There is a reason it has become a staple in Long Beach. It has been said that their Burnt Caramel + their waffle cone = perfection. But, everything you try here will be delicious!


  1. Paradis

5305 E 2nd St Long Beach, CA 90803(562) 438-8580
With comfy chairs, plenty of games to pass the time and awesome (we mean awesome on top of awesome) ice cream, Paradis is paradise. Their flavors range from the usuals to vegan, but be warned, it’s very easy to fall in love with their marshmallow, chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, raspberry, rocky road……You get the point. It’s all creamy and dreamy.
