Eclectic & seasonal flavors of organic, made-from-scratch ice cream served in a spare, rustic space.- Google
"Also, I didn't try the home-made waffle cones, but they looked good!"
"Love the toasted marshmallow topping."

Awesome flavors of ice cream that change from time to time. Personally, some of them were too sweet for me. I would stick to less sweet flavors.

Thanks for the feedback Andrew! Keep an eye out for Roasted Barley; not too sweet, lots of complex flavor! One of my personal favorites! Zachary Davis, Owner The Penny Ice Creamery

Very unique flavors of ice cream/ my favorite was the Basil ice cream! They change their flavors often, so it's always a new experience!

They have homemade ice creams that have unique flavors and taste great. Tried the rose with peach and horchata with raspberry.

Traveling the USA these many years, I started a chocolate shake research project. I rate shakes based on flavor, texture, thickness, and presentation (though that doesn't really count against a shake, just a nice bit of detail). Penny Ice Creamery, is the new #1 best shake in the nation, that I've come across so far. Ah. Maze. Ing. Amazing!!!! I got teary-eyed it was so good. Perfection.

I love the idea behind this place. They have a lot of unique flavors, but sometimes they are just...not quite all that great. But when you dig into a good flavor it's heaven!

Great ice cream shop but with much more to offer. Good selection of other snacks and floats. All cones are made in house.

This place makes Marriane's look like Baskin Robbins.
Response from the owner - a month ago
Aww, shucks. But we love Marriane's too :)

If you are walking around downtown Santa Cruz, go one block out of your way to visit this place. It is a gem! They have lots of exotic daily flavors to choose from and they are so rich that a little is all you need. For example, here is one of the current choices: Caramel Chocolate Covered Pretzel. And that is only the tip of the iceberg for this quality little ice cream place that specializes in unique. The stroll will help you to burn off the calories.
