Ici, Berkeley report (w/ pics)
My friends and I went to try Ici for the first time 9/10/06. The ice cream cone is still being fixed so none tonight, maybe in a few weeks.
The flavors change often. Samples are given out so do ask to try anything you want. Don't know the limit but I got to try 3 different flavors: ginger something, chocolate, and plum sorbet-chocolate was my favorite, ginger had good ginger flavor but didn't pick it, plum too tart.
I just went with the standard chocolate and vanilla in a small cup $3.50, the portions are small here, tasted fine. I think V. got chocolate chip-think he liked it. A. got the chocolate vanilla sandwich and liked it fine $4.25.
No seating available, we ate by the window's edge. Free ice water available. No bathrooms to the public. Credit cards available if over $10, the cashier said.
Bon Bon $1.25
box of 8 bon bons $9.50
box of 4 sandwiches $16.50
small (serves 2-4) $16.50
Medium (serves 6-8) $28.50
large (serves 10-12) $38.50
hot fudge, caramel sauce, whipped cream $.50
cones (12) $9.75
adult shirt $15.50
kid's shirt $13.50
fruit soda, soda water $2.50
cookies, candies & daily special (see specials board)-I didn't see a specials board.
Overall, I would recommend it.
Thanks for the compliment, they are just average, but I think pics help me decide if I want to try a place. Thanks to you and others on the board that reviewed it first. Hope others just try it and decide for themselves if it's worth going back.
I miss the feature where you can edit the post for a longer time, here are more details.
