This is the perfect stop for EVERYONE who visits Manhattan Beach. They have something for everyone, no matter how picky you are! You can get regular size cupcakes, miniature cupcakes, an insane collection of ice cream flavors, ice cream sandwiches, sundaes, all sorts of cookies, many variations of caramel apples, chocolate candy of every kind, and other types of candy...

So good and so many different options that you will be standing there trying to decide what to pick! I had the Banana fosters and it was so good. Huge serving, next time we will share but it was so worth it!

A traditional ice cream shop with unique seasonal variety. Favorite for children, teens and adults. I always make a point to visit the Creamery every time I'm in Manhattan Beach

For the best ice-cream around, this is the place to go. All the ice-cream is made on premises and is really high quality. Look for the lines of people waiting and eating all with a big smile

Recently swung through here both before AND after dinner down the street. I tried a scoop of the peanut butter cookie ice cream as an appetizer, and had to come back for the ice cream sandwich (made with two big chocolate chip cookies) for dessert. It was spectacular, and was gone before we'd walked the two blocks to the car.... More

When in MB to enjoy any one of the eateries, you must save room to enjoy an after dinner treat at the Creamery. You have the option of enjoying special ice cream or cupcakes. What is not to appreciate?

You can't go wrong with an ice cream parlor just a block from the beach. Perfect for that warm summer day.

I don't miss an ice cream parlor, especially if they have specialty ice cream....this store was exceptional! They not only had delicious ice cream, but offered unique novelties and candies. The flavor I enjoyed most was Guinness Pretzel...omg!!

We were walking down the street near Manhattan Beach and saw a line of people on the sidewalk. The people were waiting for ice cream from the Manhattan Beach Creamery. It is definitely worth the wait. The ice cream was great and our kids also tried the ice cream sandwiches. All round, don't give this place a miss!

Very cool iconic shop a block from the pier. The high back chairs are very unique and comfortable with their own shade and roomy enough for two. Butter pecan ice cream is always delicious here.
