So many great choices, plenty of friendly company, unique characters and combinations, and good people reaching out to help you enjoy your scoops, your day, and your time.

Your Story
Is Our History

We’re creating history together. Share your story with us. We’d love to hear from you. Let us in on your ice cream tradition. Show us your ice cream face. Or simply scoop out the love.

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.

Lavender and Northern Oregon Blackberry: a flavor combo that tastes even better than it looks (and that's saying something). What are your favorite flavors to mix and match?

I'll try it this Saturday!

I love Lavender and Lemon Custard. 👍 I’ll have to try the blackberry next!

Lavender and Fresh Banana!!!! We get to stop for a treat after pick up day at Mt. Hermon, so we'll be back in a couple of weeks. 🙂

I still can't get over Lavender with caramel sauce. It was recommended and I thought for sure it would be gross. I was so very, very wrong.

Lavender with Macapuno - delish!

Take in some art in a place that looks like a work of art 😍 Sunday Art & Music at the Beach is happening on the Esplanade at Capitola Beach on 7/14, 7/21, 8/4 & 8/11. And if you need an ice cream fix after all that fun, you know where to find us 😉

Casa de Fruta?? That place is sooo overpriced for everything - I'd much rather buy your ice-cream at the Santa Cruz old-style parlor. Or from the purple donut store near your production site by Natural Bridges!

Something old, something new, something borrowed, and a scoop of 1020... that's how it goes, right? 😉 #WeddingWednesday ... See MoreSee Less

Most call it Rocky Road, but we prefer the original: Highway 17. Santa Cruz's infamous highway inspired this fan-favorite ice cream flavor, and @pancake_pretty's tattoo, too! Thanks for sharing! ... See MoreSee Less
