McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams Downtown
- Sun-Wed: 11am-6pm
- Thurs-Sat: 11am-9pm
These purveyors of ultra-creamy ice cream got their start in Santa Barbara in 1948, and the heritage of their brand is hugely important to them. Their dairy is sourced from grass-grazed cows which are raised just north of LA on the central coast, and they’ve been working with the same creamery since they got their start (eggs are cage-free, too). This is the kind of place where classics like vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry reign supreme. Kids obviously can’t get enough of it. You can buy this stuff at many upscale grocery stores, but we prefer to have it scooped for us at either their Grand Central Market or Studio City locations.
