Foursquare Tips

  • Tuesday and Thursdays between 4 and 6, get a second single scoop for one penny
  • Toasted marshmallow fluff topping is epic.
  • Try the Burnt Cinnamon Icecream And Dark Chocolate Bonbons - Hand made ice cream . Omg
  • They're happy to give you a taste of any (or all!) of their flavors, so give the "weird" flavors a try. You're likely to be surprised.
  • My ice cream connoisseur friend says Penny is the best in the bay. Local ingredients, smooth and creamy consistency, and a constantly changing menuwhat more could you ask for?
  • I wanted to try all of the flavors of the day but ultimately decided on Salted Caramel Brownie in a waffle cone. While quite tasty, the ice cream was a bit icy and overly sweet for my taste.
  • The olive oil chocolate sea salt ice cream paired with the freshly made house donuts. ERMERGARD.
  • Burnt cinnamon is heaven on a spoon.
  • Flavors and style remind me of Bi-Rite though taste isn't quite up to par. Make sure to get a waffle cone - it is toasted goodness.
  • Get the mascarpone-kumquat ice cream and pair it with rich, dark chocolate sorbet. Elevate your order with a homemade waffle cone:
  • Pink peppercorn and bitter caramel ftw!
  • Wow. All fresh made using local ingredients. Definitely worth a visit!
  • Best ice cream ever. Try the marshmallow fluff
  • Yum is the word! Today the blackberry corn and burnt cinnamon were the fav's.
  • While most of the original flavors seem promising, they are utterly emetic. Even the classic choices taste like baby vomit.
  • Santa Cruz mountain brewing devout stout in ice-cream form? Uh-mazing.
  • Chocolate sorbet is the best
  • Dark chocolate sorbet
  • Toasted marshmallow fluff add-on!!! All of their flavors are great and not super trendy for the sake of weirdness.
  • The mint is amazing, as are the cinnamon flavors, but the specials rotate. Still, can you really go wrong at an "ice creamery"?
