“How can great cookies be this cheap?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

We had a post lunch desert here and couldn't believe the bargain! Only 35 cents for a cookie of your choice, and $1.50 for a handmade ice cream sandwich made of two cookies with a scoop of ice cream, any flavor, in between. Delicious! No wonder there were so many people queuing up for a treat!

“Cheap and good; a winner!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

The queue was way out the door when we walked past, and we knew we just had to try it. After 10-15 minutes, it was finally nearing out turn to order. The prices here are unbelievable - the cookies are so cheap! They have a really wide range of cookies and ice-cream, something for everyone. Quality-wise, it wasn't the best, but it was good. Just from a value point of view, this place is amaze-balls. Highly recommended!

“Terrific experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

I was in town for a business trip and my colleague brought me here for dessert. The line was out the door and quite long, but it only took about 20 minutes to get in, buy our customized ice cream sandwiches, and find somewhere to enjoy! What a plethora of delicious cookie/ice cream options. And such LOW prices - I couldn't believe my eyes. How can something so delicious and fresh be so inexpensive? This was an excellent find and I would absolutely come back here again.

“Heaven! Still lovin' it after 20+ years!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

They haven't changed at all... still amazing taste and price!
I remember as a UCLA student when it was our 25cent treat. Now at 35cents, it's still the best cookie around.
And, you cannot beat the $1.50 ice cream sandwich. Mix it up and choose two different cookies to squish the yummy ice cream together.
Don't be scared off by the line. It moves.
They got it right. NEVER, EVER CHANGE!

“Everything You Would Wish For In A a Cookie/Ice Cream Establishment!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

Great ice cream and cookies (as well as shaved ice). Insanely low prices. Yes, long lines, but there is a reason for that (see above). This is how a well run business should operate in my view.
