Looking for good malts

I'm talking about real malts, ice cream, milk, and malt (not just a ice-cream + milk shake). Know where I can find them?

      Haven't tried the malts at Cafe 50s but can confirm they're on the menu.

        I work often near Cafe 50's and we order in malts for clients even when lunch comes from somewhere else! Terrific and old fashioned.

    2. Johnny Rockets has the best vanilla malt I've ever had. It's made with all the real stuff!

      1. The Counter in Orange County has awesome malteds (New York spelling). As good as the ones I consumed in my youth in upper Manhattan. Worth the trip if you don't live close by.

        1. MILK on Beverly

          the counter has good malts

          swingers has good malts, both in samo and on beverly blvd

              Thanks to all.

              Is reference to "The Counter" the same "The Counter" as on Ocean Ave. in Santa Monica?

                Third both MILK and The Counter. MILK is tops.
