McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams in Los Angeles
Now open in the Grand Central Market, the third-generation family-owned Santa Barbara-based company makes super-creamy, indulgent ice creams with local, sustainable and organic ingredients. The Hybrid French Pot churning process is one reason why no preservatives, fillers, additives or stabilizers are added.
Must-Order: Get Churro Con Leche, made with real churros, Eureka Lemon and Marionberries or our beloved Salted Caramel Chip. New flavors will make appearances as seasons dictate, like the Summer Fruit Cobbler with its bits of peaches, raspberry jam and sweet golden crumble mixed right in.
Go Crazy!: Shakes like the Breakfast of Champions, made with Sweet Cream ice cream, cornflake-steeped milk, cornflake crackle and whipped cream. Or The ‘Split, a banana split made with Santa Barbara Strawberry, Chocolate Almond Brittle and Sweet Cream ice creams, sliced bananas, chocolate ganache, Paso almond brittle — truly one of the best almond brittles anywhere — sliced roasted almonds and whipped cream.
