“The best ice cream in California.” This was the accolade our coach driver gave to Lappert’s Ice Cream in Sausalito, which is located just across the Golden Gate bridge from San Francisco. That is some accolade, isn’t it?
As a purveyor of puddings, I had to find out just how true this was. So off we went to hunt down this infamous ice cream…
A short walk and $14 later found us coveting the largest ice cream sandwiches either of us had ever seen. I opted for Blueberry Cheesecake whilst my better half chose the White Chocolate Macadamia Nut flavour. If there’s a next time, definitely one between two is plenty big enough!
So, what was the verdict?
It was quite purely heaven in my mouth. Creamy, smooth and oh, so very fruity. This was combined with the crumbly homemade cookies surrounding the ice cream. For approximately 20 minutes, my taste buds were on fire, an ice cold fire! We sadly had to guard our pudding from the many seagulls that started engulfing us, but thankfully, the seagulls did not win this battle. This ice cream was far too good to waste on seagulls!
Once the heavenly 20 minutes of eating was over, it was time to walk back to the coach…or rather, waddle back to the coach complaining that we had eaten too much. Oh, whatever, it was worth it!
Where can you find this amazing Californian ice cream?
Sausalito may be too far just to go for ice cream, but it’s safe to say that if you ever find yourself in this charming town and you’re a pudding lover, then you should definitely take a trip to Lappert’s. You won’t regret it!
Here’s where you need to go:
During your trip, maybe you can even combine a visit to Sausalito with a trip to Muir Woods to see the Californian Redwood trees like we did? These trees are magnificent to see, and the walk through them is incredibly relaxing. But hey, I really love exploring in nature during my travels!
On the other hand, in case you find yourself with longer to spend discovering the wonders of Sausalito than we did, here is a copy of a visitor map in all its cartoon glory ready for you to download. Enjoy!
