The Best Ice Cream Shops in San Luis Obispo

For many, the taste of delicious ice cream is one of life's great simple pleasures. As a great pick-me-up during the day or the end to a fun evening out, a trip to the local ice cream shop can be enjoyed by all. San Luis Obispo is fortunate to have some great local ice cream shops that are open throughout the year. Here are a few delectable ones to try to satisfy that sweet tooth:


Though it sounds more like a science experiment than a sweet treat, Doc Burnstein's Ice Cream Lab is definitely worth the trip. Located in downtown San Luis Obispo, Doc Burnstein's Ice Cream Lab is part of a small chain of boutique ice cream shops on the Central Coast. With its cool lighting and quirky vibe, this ice cream shop serves out-of-the-box flavors with equally funky names including Straight to the Dentist, Rooster Tracks, and Motor Oil.


For those looking to up their ice cream ante, look no further than Batch, a charming downtown shop that serves up delicious ice cream sandwiches. Batch combines the best of both worlds with premium homemade ice cream and freshly baked cookies to deliver mouth-watering goodness. Customers can choose from a variety of ice cream flavors such as vanilla, banana nut, and mint chip and enjoy them between two cookies with flavors including chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin.


Located in Laguna Village Shopping Center, Snofari Frozen Yogurt is the perfect spot to satisfy that craving for frozen yogurt. Customers can create their own dessert with a rotating selection of daily flavors including California Tart, Dole Whip Pineapple, and Dulce De Leche. A full selection of candy, fruit, and other assorted toppings are also available to add to the sweet masterpiece.
