CAULDRON ICE CREAM
The ice cream at Cauldron is made with liquid nitrogen which not only makes for delicious flavor, but it's fun to watch it being made as you wait! They have unique flavors - like maple bourbon crunch, vietnamese coffee, and the one I tried - h2O rose.
Ghiradelli is a classic dessert company that most people have tried or heard of. However, the in shop experience is amazing because they have so many goodies to choose from! I love their sundaes, topped with a classic Ghiradelli square.
CREME & SUGAR

I love donuts, if you couldn't already tell. Sidecar is one of the best! They are located at the Del Mar highlands and always taste fresh and delicious. Pictured below is the salted malted chocolate chip cookie dough and the butter & salt.
Donut Bar has a wide offering of AMAZING donuts. Every time I've gone in, they have new and enticing flavors - they even have a grilled cheese made between two glazed donuts.. drool worthy!
SALT & STRAW
Located in Little Italy and Del Mar. Their ice cream is hand-made and each month, they come out with a different list of unique flavors.
Coppertop Coffee & Donuts is a MUST visit. They have donuts, ice cream, coffee, and other goodies. Their donuts are made fresh when you order and are SO soft and delicious. The donut I got was a PB&J with oreos and I wish I could eat there everyday.
Another amazing spot that offers flights! ICE. CREAM. FLIGHTS. Scoops is located in La Jolla right by the beach. They offer ice cream, coffee, and crepes. They also offer a bunch of vegan flavors which is great for people who are lactose intolerant but still loves ice cream!!
