You might be able to buy McConnell’s in every semi-decent grocery store in the wider LA area, but that just means you can eat one of our favorite ice creams in town every damn day of the week. These Santa Barbarans have been making ice cream for 70 years and it shows. They know their way around the classics (the vanilla bean is a real best in show), but also make fancier flavors like boysenberry rosé milk jam. Build the sundae of your dreams at this or their two other locations in Studio City and Los Feliz. Always get the turkish coffee ice cream.
