“Unique Ice Cream Sandwich”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

Its been really different experience to taste an Ice cream between two fresh made warm cookies .. being made fresh in front of you .. I tried Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookie with Banana Fudge Walnut ice cream Sandwich with Marsh mellow topping .. which was of a great taste and liked ..
and justified my waiting for little in a line .. I also tried Cappuccino Cookie with Green Tea ice cream .. but it was not that good .. In spite of a rush service is quick with smile ..

“Great ice cream sandwich, great atmosphere, great price!”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

I was walking down University Ave. in Palo Alto and after stopping by the Apple store, saw a line for people wanting ice cream sandwiches. I gave it a try and they are really good...customize your cookie, ice cream, toppings and done with friendly, efficient service. My friend from UK thought it was cool as well...great for friends, family, and business associates.

“Ice Cream of my Dreams”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

Choose your cookie, choose your ice cream and then choose what you want it all rolled in after it has been assembled as an ice cream sandwich. This place is good as can be told by the lines that form in front. It's also a great deal - like $3 for all this. WOW and in Palo Alto, you would think it would be at least double that.

“Good value, very good flavors.”
Reviewed 14 September 2013 via mobile

Excellent artisanal ice cream flavors at medium intensity and premium ice cream consistency (perhaps optimized in part for spreading to make ice cream sandwiches). Line moves quickly - the 15 minute wait was perhaps typical. Very adequate portions at reasonable prices - considerably less expensive than the best, fully artisanal ice cream or yogurt in town. Friendly, cheerful, efficient service. Didn't try their cookies yet - just bought cups of ice cream. Seems would be especially satisfying for kids and families with kids.

“Custom made ice cream sandwich!”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

I visited Cream with a couple of friends on a Friday night after hearing all the hype. Sure the lines were long and 80% of the folks in the line had never tried the ice cream from this place! So made us wonder if its going to be worth the wait.

But after 30 minute wait, finally we got to order our custom made ice cream sandwich. Eating a custom made ice cream sandwich on freshly backed cookies is an experience of its own.

Heard that lines are shorter around 5:30 pm if you want to avoid the wait.
