Best Ice Cream Parlor in LA (like Farrells used to be)

For my husband's 40th birthday, I want to surprise him and take him and our 3 kids, under 5 years old) for ice cream someplace great. My husband loved Farrell's as a kid and I am wondering if the current farrells is worth the trip or if we should try fosselmans or dr bob's.

We live in west LA but will travel 30-45 minutes.

Any suggestions?
Thanks!

  1. Fosselman's, hands down, IMHO.

    1. While I like both Dr. Bob's and Fosselman's ice creams, the later has a genuine old time ice cream parlor ambiance that my lads enjoy. And it's closer to WLA where you are comming from and also closer to a vast selection of Chinese cusine that I usually have before a trip to Fosselman's!!!

      1. Be aware that Fosselman's doesn't have table service. You wait in line and get your goodies and then find your own table.

        1. The one last Farrell's is located in Santa Clarita. My cousin had her hubby's 40th Bday there. It was quite fun. There is also mini golf and an arcade for the kids. Not exactly the same as the original Farrell's but they do have the Zoo and the Pig's Trough.

            We LOVED Glacier ice cream in Manhattan Beach. The flavors were more rich and and flavors more spot on than Scoops. I had the Gingersnap... the darn best ginger bread ice cream since B&J Festivus (My all time fave ice cream) and Homemade Fudge, Peanutbutter and Oreo (yes, I did type that out right... and yes, now I can die happy).

            P. had birthday cake, which really had the fun taste of cake batter.

            Their in house waffle cones are also EXCELLENT, not to sweet, delicate so you can eat them really easy...

            We want to be back often, but our diet perfers we do otherwise... LOL!

          2. RIP C. C. Brown's and Soda Jerks.

            You mentioned Farrell's, Fosselman's and Dr. Bob's, all of which are a lot more than 45 minutes from West L.A.., so I'll recommend the Fair Oaks Pharmacy in South Pas which is a little closer and has the old-fashioned soda fountain vibe.

            1. re: maxzook

              These four would have been my suggestion, but I'll also throw in MILK as an option.

              1. re: maxzook

                I love the soda fountain that was relocated from a midwestern shop but the ice cream served at Fair Oaks Pharmacy & Soda Fountain is mediocre compared to Fosselman's and Dr. Bob's.

                1. re: sel

                  Perhaps, but I think think the OP is going for the old-fashioned-soda-fountain vibe in preference to the gourmet-ice-cream vibe. Otherwise, I'd recommend Scoops or Milk over Farrell's.

                  Catching up on links ...

                    Thanks, as always, for linking maxzook. On my computer, linking somehow remains an iffy function.

                  2. re: sel

                    Funny, I am pretty sure they serve Fosselman's ice cream at the Fair Oaks Pharmacy.

                    1. re: Minimang

                      Me too, I had read that they served Fosselman's but after a hot fudge sundae I asked and the server said that they did not. Maybe they once did and maybe they do now but they did not the few times that I've gone in the past. Still a cool soda fountain though!

                  3. re: maxzook

                    I grew up going to Fair Oaks Pharmacy and Soda Fountain, my Nana used to have a toy store across the street. From the days when I needed help onto the stool to current day it has the same "Norman Rockwell" atmosphere and hands down best ice cream sodas anywhere. Fosselman's just opened another branch in San Marino on Huntington Dr. but the ice cream "joint" on Main in Alhambra is where they make the ice cream which comes in classic flavors like Rocky Road and Mint Chip to more exotics like Taro. Enjoy with your kids, I have many fond memories of both these places.

                    1. re: Minimang

                      Me too. I grew up going to Fosselman's (and Kane's toys!-all time favorite toy store in the world). But I must say Fair Oaks Pharmacy has gone down hill lately. Really bad service and the management doesn't seem to care much about the condition of the place.

                  4. Understandably, this being Chowhound, the recs are starting to head toward "where to get the best ice cream" (which by the way has been covered a lot lately in other threads) as opposed to what it sounds like the original post is really looking for: a bell-ringing, celebration-place of an old-timey ice cream parlour. MILK has great product, but it certainly ain't that.

                    I'm no expert on the topic, having not been to any of the other recs, but I will throw out two more local destinations that seem to come closer in terms of environment:

                    The Disney Soda Fountain across from The Chinese on Hollywood (albiet a complete corporate refabrication).

                    And apparently, just up the block, Lickety Split is about to reopen.

                    1. Dr. Bob's has an ice cream shop? I thought he closed that 2 years ago?

                      Glacier has the best ice cream in Southern California, but it's not a Farrell's-type sitdown shoppe. You'd have to go to Doc Burnstein's way up in Arroyo Grande for the full-on ice cream shoppe experience

                        There's also Dewar's in Bakersfield for the real deal...but clearly Farrell's in Santa Clarita is a lot closer than both of those.

                        1. re: wutzizname

                          The Disney Store soda fountain next to the El Capitan in Hollywood carries Dewar's ice cream.

                      2. MILK would not be too far: 7290 Beverly, 90036: 323 939 6455, but may I suggest going by first to check it out.

                        1. I predict that your kids will LOVE Farrell's, and your husband will be slightly disappointed, but still happy to see a bit of the old Farrell's. For those with fond memories of going to Farrell's as a kid (like me), there is really no substitute. The current Farrell's is not quite like what I remember, but close enough to count for a trip down memory lane. I vote for the long trip out to Santa Clarita.

                          1. I loved Farrells as a kid and fondly remember having more than one birthday party there. The one I went to is just blocks from where I currently live. I've thought on many occasions that it would be great to have a place like that open back up.

                              Thanks so much for all your help.

                              We have been to MILK (it is close) and enjoy it. but it isn't really what I had in mind.

                              I think I may go for the memory lane vibe or give Fosselmans a shot.

                              Scoops was bizarre the day we went. My 5 year old twins wouldn't eat anything they had. The choices were innovative but not at all kid friendly.

                              Is the ice cream at the Disney Soda Fountain decent? Otherwise, we're off to Farrells or Fossemans.

                              1. re: roxhills

                                Agree that while Scoops is a Jewel of our beloved city, it is NOT a traditional soda fountain / ice creamery.

                                1. re: roxhills

                                  While I love sampling all the "bizarre" flavors at Scoops, I agree that they are not kid friendly. Most kids stick with their familiar flavors. My daughter had a scoop of chocolate on our last visit. She wasn't really impressed. My son totally refused to sample anything.

                              2. Don't forget Handel's in Upland! Excellent Ice Cream and so is Fosselman's and Dr Bob's but niether of them are like Farrels.
                                I guess one has to drive to Santa Clarita for a Zoo or Pig Through...

                                1. This is a tough thing, honestly. The Farrell's in Santa Clarita is NOT what we grew up with, as kids. This, coming from my mother who went for HER birthday (?!?) in July. I grilled her all about it, totally jealous she got to go. (why did my uncle think SHE wanted to go there, it was me!!) She relayed that it was only "okay, not worth the drive" and she lives in Burbank.

                                  Our childhood memories can be strong, and food memories can be the strongest. The whole Farrell's event when you're 10 years old was magical..(at least for me!) But, flash-forwards to being 40....It's different. Some things may be similar, but...I hate to say it...He may be dissappointed going there. Your kids?? They'll love it no matter what.

                                  But!! A trip to that Farrell's may still be a good thing, he can tell the kids about being a kid himself, and it could still be a very warm and fuzzy-feeling day. Possibly a bit melancholy, but hey...It still might be nice to visit. Please Tell us all where you end up going, and how it went.

                                  1. Thanks Hounds for all your suggestions.
                                    Yesterday turned out to be a tricky day as the 21 month old hound is getting over an icky stomach virus and there was a TERRIBLE accident on the freeway. So, we left the little guy with a babysitter and took the twins to the Disney Soda Fountain.

                                    For those of you who haven't been, it is attached to the lobby of the El Capitan. We arrived just before the 1 PM show started so the fountain was pretty quiet. We sat at the counter and had "lunch" The girls had Mickey Waffles and my husband and I had French Dips that were not anything to return for. My husband also had a cherry phosphate. I have nothing to compare it to but it was okay.

                                    The staff was nice but the service was a bit slow. When it was time to order dessert, they were very nice. They have 8 or so flavors or Dewars Ice cream which we had never had before. It was very good ice cream-- rich, creamy and memorable. Reminded me a bit of Graeters. The girls each picked an ice cream flavor and a topping. i had a black and white sundae-- vanilla ice cream topped with yummy, thick hot fudge topped with chocolate ice cream and a thick sweet marshmallow sauce topping with ground almonds. The birthday guy built his own Sundae. Everyone left happy.

                                    Considering the limitations of the day, it was really fun. We parked at Hollywood and Highland and they validated at the Soda Fountain.

                                    We still want to try Fossellmans and some of the others on a day when we have more time.

                                      Thanks for the follow up report! Dewar's in Bakersfield and The Disney Soda Fountain have been on my to try list for too long, when I hit Disney it will be for ice cream only! And do try Fosselman's, an authenic old time place that now has some great Asian flavor ice creams in addition to the usual vanilla, chocolate etc.

                                    2. Lucky Devil's is sort of like a soda fountain for grown ups!

                                      1. Been to them all. I was a little runt when the baby sitter took me to Leo's and to Curries. Both unforgettable! Morgan's in Rosemead was also a source of quality ice cream through the years. CC Browns was a Hollywood legend. White Mountain in Irvine across from UCI made their own on the premises. Customers could watch it being made in large "White Mountain" wooden ice cream buckets. Their Jamaican Rum and Espresso Coffee flavors were superbly rich! Out of town visitors were overwhelmed by the selection, quality and service. Relatives showed me to famous ice cream joints in the Midwest, East Coast and Canada. Some were great but Alhambra held its own. Tops in California is, hands down, the old Superior Dairy ice cream parlor in midtown Hanford. They have their own on-site processing plant and cream brought in from a local dairy. However, a person cannot go wrong at reliable Fosselman's, year in, year out.

                                          What I wouldn't give to go back and visit that shop just one more time!

                                              Kaisr,

                                              I concur. Superior Dairy in Hanford tops even Dewar's in Bakersfield (not just in terms of the massive quantities they serve, but of quality). It's really the quintessential old-timey ice cream parlor. Well worth a stop if you're on the way to, well, it's not on the way to anywhere. But it is destination eating.

                                              Stop at their creepy, decrepit China Alley while you're there.

                                              Mr Taster

                                            2. Fosselman's for the win. They don't have table service, it's true. But a great true ice cream shop and killer flavors.

                                                I must be the only one who finds Fosselman's to be sub-par ice cream.

                                                Maybe the first time I tried it I found it interesting or likable, but every time since it's been yawn-inducing.

                                                The last time there we all threw away what we'd ordered.

                                                So much easier to make much higher quality ice cream at home.

                                                  You are not the only one. I'm with you. I find it icy at times. It's a shame because it's a neat place and I REALLY want to love it... But can't.

                                                  I was there last weekend, had the peach ice cream. It was just "okay" -- and the day before had the peach at Sweet Rose in the Brentwood country mart -- FAR superior.

                                                  1. re: gr8pimpin

                                                    I find Fosselman's strength is harder-to-find flavors like ube and taro. Otherwise, one can typically find examples of more common flavors that are more to one's liking.

                                                    The current movement toward ice cream making with premium ingredients is relatively recent - the bar has been significantly raised. But prior to this, Fosselman's was one of a few places making what was considered premium ice cream at that time. They seem strongly rooted in their own culture, and the cash register keeps ringing. So I really don't see them changing.

                                                    1. re: bulavinaka

                                                      I've heard that the cappuccino ice cream served at Dan Tana's ($10.00) comes from Fosselman's.

                                                        I guess being a non-native - I know, I know, shocker! - I don't have the nostalgia-tinged tastebuds that make Fosselman's so desirable.

                                                          unless, of course there is a downhill alert...

                                                    2. re: a213b

                                                      No, I think the ice cream is bland, thin, and insipid. I've gotten many, many flavors over the years and it still doesn't do anything for me. I am a SoCal native.

                                                      It's decent if I'm in the area, but not worth driving for. I'd drive for Handel's butter pecan though. Esp on $1 Wednesdays.

                                                      1. re: choctastic

                                                        Butter Pecan ice cream! Wow, now THAT's a flavour right out of history. I hardly ever see it these days.

                                                          That's their best selling flavor. It should be because it huge crispy pecans snuggled in a creamy, rich buttery vanilla ice cream. It's the only butter pecan I like.

                                                        I drive by every week, if not twice a week, and I haven't bothered in years. By years, I mean almost a decade. It's basically a life goal to never eat Fosselman again. And why would one, when there's equally shitty nostalgia available at Rite-aid?

                                                          Thier flavors are hit and miss. Their salted caramel was something I tried once but never desired again yet I loved that flavor at Sweet Rose. Others like taro and lychee have been favorites.

                                                          1. re: a213b

                                                            Different strokes for different folks. People rave about Scoops but I can't ever get past their texture and lack of creaminess. Fosselman's may not be the best but I certainly don't think they're so bad I'd throw away an order.

                                                            1. re: Jase

                                                              I don't know what Scoops is doing differently, but I've been to Scoops Westside three or four times in the last few months, and the texture is much smoother and less icy. They'll never be as "creamy" as, say, Sweet Rose, since they don't use egg in their base, but I really liked the texture of the ice cream there lately.

                                                                1. re: jessejames

                                                                  I have to say, if you haven't had Scoops lately, give it another shot if convenient. Much improved.

                                                                  1. re: TheOffalo

                                                                  2. re: TheOffalo

Ever since Cool Haus opened up in Culver City, they've been my westside choice for ice cream. I like their flavor choices and it's easier to get to than Sweet Rose for me. I like Sweet Rose but it can be too rich for my wife at times.

                                                                    1. re: Jase

                                                                      1. re: TheOffalo

I was taught to store it in deep freeze overnight right after it's made to set everything. Then move to a regular freezer to let it sit and slowly come up to scooping density before moving it to the display case. Improper handling in the steps can affect the texture. I loved that first scoop after it's come up to the right temp. Put it on a dish, let it soften some more to allow the flavors to hit the tongue properly instead of being too cold. Heaven, especially if you're using great ingredients and a good base.

                                                                        But that's just the way I was taught. I'm sure there other better alternatives for handling that are less time intensive.

                                                                        1. re: Jase

                                                                          1. re: TheOffalo

                                                                            Thanks, I know some, not a lot. Not in the food industry any more. In my younger years I was. At one point I ran an ice cream shop that made everything on the premises. Special ordered our base from a local dairy. No artificial flavourings. Used expensive bourbon vanilla extract for all the recipes. High end cocoa powder we'd have to cook and slowly mix before blending it in while churning. Same with the coffee. Start with good beans, grind fresh, brew up a concentrated batch to be used. No crappy extract.

                                                                            I grew up with Fosselman's when it was one of the first wave of more upscale ice cream and everyone thought it was one of the best. But our product blew theirs away easily. Anyone who compared the two easily picked ours.

                                                                            Loved the product and was hard core in learning everything from making to how to run the business properly. Looked into owning my own place. But in the end decided the long term market wasn't there, I was ahead of the foodie wave and couldn't really charge the prices I thought the product and my time deserved. I didn't want the lifestyle of eking out a living on tight margins and long hours.

                                                                            If I was in the same position 7-10 years ago? I probably would have done it. The market would have supported the prices for the quality I wanted to turn out.

                                                                2. re: happybaker

                                                                  But don't go there looking for great ice cream.

                                                                  Good? Maybe.

                                                                  1. re: ipsedixit

                                                                      It's like those who order a burger with bacon, cheese, onions, guacamole, relish, tomatoes, onion rings, mustard, ketchup, etc on their burgers. They ain't looking for the great beef. Just a vehicle for condiments.

                                                                      Nothing wrong with that. But let's not confuse the two.

                                                                          What do you find appealing about a banana split? To me, bananas were never a good pairing for ice cream. There's no textural contrast - both are soft and sort of mushy on the tongue - and the generally mild flavors of the banana don't do much to complement or amplify ice cream flavors.

                                                                          1. re: ipsedixit

That's the texture part that is key. All the components come together for me. I like choosing three flavors of ice cream and 3 sauces too. But a sundae without nuts is missing something. Spanish peanuts r my favorite.

                                                                                              1. re: JudiAU

                                                                                        2. re: ipsedixit

                                                                                          1. re: bringiton

                                                                                            But frozen bananas and banana split sundaes share as much in common as a corn dog and a hot dog. Not much.

                                                                                  2. re: ipsedixit

It's fine, and I agree that it's worth seeking out for the non-traditionally American flavors. But the quality of their ice cream doesn't reach the heights of greatness of the great central valley dairies, like Superior Dairy in Hanford.

                                                                                    I'm not considering Bulgarini because comparing gelato to ice cream is an unfair and unequal comparison.

                                                                                  Soda Jerks on the Santa Monica Pier is great. It's located in the Merry-Go-Round building using Fosselman's ice cream

                                                                                  1. Soda Jerks on Pier or maybe Sweet Rose

                                                                                    1. All of the little kids I know love Sweet Rose Creamery. I am most familiar with the one in Brentwood, but they do have 2 other locations. The Brentwood location has a lovely little outdoor patio.. Sweet Rose makes insanely good milkshakes, malts, sundaes, in addition to delicious ice cream and outstanding toppings. I think they are very expensive, what WTH, it is a special occasion. Get extra whipped cream and a handful of homemade chocolate chips on top.

                                                                                        This may be a distinction without a difference but I think of Sweet Rose as an ice cream shop not an ice cream parlor. It's the ambiance.

                                                                                      2. Noting the recent posts, I haven't had much of the high end ice cream shops in Los Angeles, only one that's talked about that I've been to is Carmela to which I find great exotic unique flavors but I personally prefer solid ice cream quality first before any special flavors. I'd rather have the best quality plain vanilla ice cream in the world over a 'good quality' amazing unique flavor combination. Is there any ice cream shop/parlour with the quality of ice cream that I'm used to?(Niederfrank's in National City). I'm not sure but I think Niederfrank's used buttermilk.

                                                                                              1. re: wienermobile

                                                                                                There's a reason why always a line there. I also like their more mainstream flavors with a little spice for the hipsters not the other way around.

                                                                                          1. While not really a parlor setting, Saffron & Rose on Westwood is really really good.

                                                                                            1. In 6.5 years' worth of posts, not a single mention of Mashti Malone?

                                                                                                  when I think MM I think mashti's and rosewater flavor, not sundae's and splits.
