Afters Ice Cream review image

Afters Ice Cream


After’s is best known as that ice cream spot you always see on your Instagram and wonder if it’s actually good or not. Update: it’s very good. (Which is why we had it at EEEEEATSCON.) With flavors like milk n’ cereal, peanut butter s’mores, and the bright blue cookie monster, After’s is not your old-school ice cream parlor. Toppings can get crazy and if you aren’t piling it all into one of their signature milky buns (basically a doughnut wallet), you might as well not even come. There are locations throughout the OC/suburbs but LA’s closest locations are in Pasadena and Long Beach.

Carmela is a solid ice cream shop in Beverly Grove and a nice escape from the chaos of the farmers market next door.
