Homemade ice cream on the Westside

Anyone know ice cream places and addresses on the Westside?

      1. My house too. Otherwise I think you are looking for housemade or made in house?

        1. Just went last week. Saffron and Rose on Westwood Boulevard accross from where Boarders was is off the charts. Crazy good.

            Really great place to find flavors you normally never see, but I'll be honest, some of the choices were pretty out there, and not things we'd order a second time. Still, if you want a dessert that's not overpoweringly sweet, S&R is a great discovery.

                You can get some idea by scrolling through the Yelp photos:

                  There was a cucumber + ? combination we tried that I wouldn't get again, and an avocado with basil that my friend couldn't finish. Loved how some of the flavors smelled though, really refreshing on a hot day.

                    They will let you sample any and all of their flavors. Literally. Just ask.

                      We did just that a couple of months ago. An out-of-town guest never tried Persian anything before so we made a requisite primer visit to Shamshiri and S and R after. He was skeptical of many of the nontraditional flavors at first but after going thru the line-up, he was impressed. Saffron rosewater pistachio is what he ordered.

            2. Obvious answers are Scoops Westside and Cool Haus. Now Bulgarini is serving their gelato at Treeforest in culver city.... I don't like their gelato personally. I like the gelato at Ugo (it's the only thing I like there) in culver city also. Looking forward to trying S&R!
