Our Story

 

As one of the few homegrown Los Angeles ice creameries, we make small batches of handcrafted ice cream daily in our Santa Monica kitchen. We were born out of Josh Loeb, Zoe Nathan and Chef Shiho Yoshikawa’s desire to create delicious, organic ice cream in a nostalgic setting for friends and family to enjoy it in. We opened our first shop in 2010 at the charming Brentwood Country Mart, and we now have five neighborhood-friendly locations throughout LA.

 

Since our kitchen is only a mile away from the famous Santa Monica Farmers’ Market, how could we not take advantage of that? We love our farmers and we’re always inspired by what’s in season and letting those beautiful ingredients shine! Year-round, we’ve got classics such as Coffee flavored with beans from our friends at Caffe Luxxe or Fresh Mint made with peppermint leaves from Kenter Canyon Farms and homemade chocolate chips, alongside whimsical, seasonal flavors like Sweet Potato Swirl with salty sesame brittle or Cherimoya Coconut sorbet. There are always new flavors and something for everyone!

 

We’re a part of the Rustic Canyon Family, a collection of beloved, chef-driven dining destinations, which includes Rustic Canyon, Huckleberry Bakery & Cafe, Milo & Olive, Cassia, Esters Wine Shop & Bar and Tallula’s. As a group, we believe in using only the best ingredients we can get our hands on, which means we use organic milk and cream from Clover Farms and organic eggs from Chino Valley Ranchers in our ice cream. Our kitchen is 100% GMO-free and kosher-certified, and we make everything in-house like our dairy base, toppings, sauces, waffle cones and more. We hope you enjoy eating our ice cream as much as we love making it!
