Scooped, shaved, or shaken, ice cream will forever be an LA staple. Angelenos could go for a cone anytime of year, really (the iconic beaches, endless sunshine, and lack of central A/C might have something to do with it), but a whole day devoted to the frozen treat? We’re here for that too. National Ice Cream Day is right around the corner (mark your calendars: Sunday, July 19th) and to celebrate the occasion, we’ve compiled a list of the highest rated scoop shops across LA. Scroll on for the full scoop and follow our full collection to keep this roundup handy on your Yelp app.
[Note: the below shops are either open for dine-in or offering limited delivery, takeout, or curbside service as of July 6, 2020.]
