If you are reading this review, then my guess is that you have read several other reviews of Cowlicks. I am not sure how anyone can give this fabulously decadent ice cream store anything less than a rating of 5 (Excellent). Generous portions of oh-so-rich...More

Great ice cream, and often a line to get in. But so many of the customers are quite obviously fat and should not be here :( Everyone likes ice cream, but sadly ice cream doesn't like all of us.

The ice cream is very creamy, smooth, and tasty. It has a rich flavor. The service is good and the place is good for people watching

Good variety of flavors, ice cream was tasty - offer ice cream sandwiches (we made our own from cookies from Mendocino cookie co). Not sure there are other ice cream places in town - but certainly a great option for after beach refreshment.

Parking in public/private lot. Fast service and good ice cream. Prices are a bit high, $18.00 for 5 individual scoops, whoa!
