It's hard to put into words how good the ice cream is at Doc's. The creamy texture and fantastic flavor combinations are on point. The staff are the best anywhere, FUN FUN FUN place to go.

“Best Ice Cream EVER!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

When in the Village of Arroyo Grande, this ice cream lab is a MUST stop. The kids and grown ups alike will love this place. Many different ice cream flavors including Merlot (we are wine country) and many new experiments that actual local kids develop.

“Cute place, great flavors!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

Such a cute place!! Lots to see while you are standing in line. Great ice cream flavors! Some very adventurous flavors, like black licorice. Looked awful. I should have tried it. I was safe and went with oreo mint something...yummy. I also tried the root beer marble, that was just ok. Mostly tasted like vanilla. Lots of cute little gifts, games, candy in the store as well.
