Manhattan Beach Creamery continues its reign as favorite ice cream shop in the South Bay with an unwavering commitment to fresh, inventive homemade ice cream and baked goods. Now that they have welcomed Cupcake Couture’s signature cupcakes into the store, there is even more reason to get your sugar fix here. What goes better with a cup of dulche du leche ice cream than a peanut better cupcake? And the old fashioned candy options and old-timey fountain shop tables and chairs make the Creamery a favorite spot for sweet-tooths of all ages.
