Whether you’re into a good old fashioned ice cream scoop, unique ice cream sandwiches, matcha ice cream, or just craving a sugar rush – here’s a flavorful round up of all the ice cream happenings in LA. Give me that sweet talk (in no particular order)!
Little Damage Ice cream to match your soul. This popular new ice cream spot in DTLA boasts black ice cream, black cones, black everything. Be wary of the long lines, the wait could be a quick 30 minutes to hours but it’s totally worth it! Past and current flavors include the popular Almond Charcoal, Salted Covefefe, and even Unicorn Tears.

Salt & Straw With FIVE locations in LA (with new locations opening soon to more cities), this Portland staple and specialty ice cream shop features a super sweet new menu every month with a different theme. They still have their classic flavors all year round (by location) like the delectable Almond Brittle with Salted Ganache and yummy Honey Lavender!

Somi Somi Spotted: Wild fish in the heart of K-town! Soft serve swirly cute ice cream served in adorable fish shaped waffle cones you can have with a nutella, custard, or red bean filling! Ice cream flavors include matcha, milk, ube and black sesame and your choice of toppings. Too cute to eat… not.
Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream Tucked away in locations like Los Feliz and Venice, they sell dozens of flavor profiles including Goat Cheese with Red Cherries, Poached Pear Riesling Sorbet, and Brambleberry Crisp. So fancy.

Scoops We’re all raving about their brown bread ice cream and cheap prices that take it back to enjoying a satisfying scoop or two for under $5! Don’t forget to bring cash as some locations are cash only.
Museum of Ice Cream Ice cream history? Tell me more. Ladies, there’s an ice cream MUSEUM with a pool full of sprinkles you can lay in. Even Queen Bey took a trip with the fam here. They serve you ice cream throughout your museum visit and have THE cutest set ups for the perfect IG money shot. Act fast because getting tickets to this thing has turned into the new Coachella. Tickets are currently sold out until October but a new location is opening very soon in San Francisco!
