Very good, a bit pricey but the best ice cream in San Jose. They have places all over the city, the employees are very friendly and helpful as well.

There are many locations, but the ice cream is excellent in all of them. I've been disappointed in the retail locations from the USA that I've tried. Pops never disappoints. Now if they only carried cherry vanilla....

This is a lovely little stand right in the plaza. You go, order your ice cream, and go sit down with your cold scoop of happiness. The staff is quick with your order and pleasant. This is centrally located and a good place to hit...More

There seems to be one of these shops on every corner so we finally had to try it. My son loved it and went back a few times during our visit. Seems to be a solid choice.

This is your typical ice cream shop with overpriced ice cream cones and treats. There seems to be several in downtown San Jose, but never busy. Maybe on date night.
