Mission Hill makes great ice cream. The flavors change all the time, but there are a few they always have like Salted Caramel. Mission Hill doesn't get the notoriety that another ice cream place gets, but it should. They have coffee and hot chocolate and the owner is very community oriented supporting the local schools and our own D League basketball team. Free ice cream when the Santa Cruz Warriors score a 100 points. They've given out a ton of free ice cream this season. :) Go to Mission Hill, you won't be disappointed.

We had a couple of sundaes, the Elvis and the s'mores. They both tasted amazing... Loved that they actually toast the marshmallow cream on the top! Definitely would recommend this place. Not huge portions, but they don't need to be, its quality not quantity.

4 of us all got different flavors and all were great. My favorite was the Bourbon. I did think that for the price the scoops were extremely small.

If you are on a mission for tasty ice cream in downtown Santa Cruz, Mission Hill is definitly great. It's ice cream is different, but not unusal. The people that work there are very nice, it's seating and decorations are good, and it's clean everywhere you walk. If ice cream is on the tip of your tounge, mission hill is the place to go.

The people at mission hill are quick, sometimes it's hard to keep up with them. It takes one minute to order and the next minute you are eating ice cream.

The food will make you want to come back for sure. You have options, you can get a single scoop, or ask for a half and half singel scoop (two flavors), or a scoop in a bowl (comes with a crushed cone). The flavors change everyday (some still there, some not) and you can get combo dishes too (on the menu).

Mission hill has a great team, the decorations make the room gleam, and that's why it's my favorite ice cream

My 6 and 8 year old g-kids clamored to order their ice cream after a trip to the beach. Yums all around!
