C.C. Brown's

  • e

I wonder if there are any ice cream parlors left in Southern California like C.C. Browns. I grew up with the kids of the owners and miss CC Browns since they closed in 1996. Anyone remeber CC Browns or have any interesting stories? I grew up in Calabasas and we use to go all the time, espcially after we got our drivers license, after the movies at the Chinese Theatre and get free sundaes.

  1. When they shut down CC Browns, there was a lot of talk of the heirs carrying on by at least selling the hot fudge sauce. I haven't seen it, have you?
    There are 2 soda fountains on Fair Oaks, one in South Pasadena at Mission and one in Pasadena near the fire station as you approach the Green Hotel.
    I recall reading a thread recently about a classic old place in Bakersfield that sounds more like what you are looking for.

      They still sell several sauces on their website.

        I've seen the sauces for sale at Bristol Farms. They are also available on line.

          Hey, thanks. Sometimes it's so good to be wrong.

          You're thinking of "Soda Jerks" on the west side of Fairoaks between Green St and Del Mar. Their ice cream comes from Fosselman's in Alhambra, they have a shop on Main St in Alhambra.

        3. I had a sundae topped with their hot fudge at Lawry's Prime Rib in Beverly Hills. It's served in a pedestal cup with freshly whipped cream and toasted good!
