Made with Love
Hand-crafted ice cream that’s made with love. Marianne’s has been innovating flavors and using time honored techniques to bring the richest creamiest and most delightful ice creams to you since 1947.-More-
A careful process of hand preparing our ingredients and hand mixing the flavors reflects the personal care we take every day. Starting before 6:00 am, the folks at Marianne’s are working to deliver the best ice cream and novelties we know how to make.
We have more than 100 flavors in our rotation and more than 250 in our recipe box. So, whether it’s our latest experiment, or the honored standby, you know the ice cream is still made the way it is has always been made- By hand, right here in Santa Cruz.
Whether it’s your first stop on your way in, or your last stop on your way out, Marianne’s is a great time.
We recently added another classic location, the former Bob’s Market in Seacliff was also built in 1947, and so we have an instant classic at the entrance to Seacliff Beach State Park. Walk in on any morning and you can have espresso or coffee and check out the Local Flavor.
