Very good ice cream. I wouldn't say that it was like something I have never tasted, ice cream is ice cream, but nonetheless it was good ice cream!

Mitchell's is known for their tropical flavors. However, their Mexican chocolate is also very good, as are all their ice creams. Worth a visit if you're willing to brave the line.

Love their ice cream except a little pricey. Very impressive how they perfected the ethnic flavors of the East namely ube, langka & macapuno ( traditional filipino ice cream flavors). The line is long since it's very popular with locals, however, express is vet convenient...More

We live in the neighborhood so I've never considered writing a review of Mitchell's until I just reviewed another creamery and compared it to Mitchells. We've been coming to Mitchell's for special nights with kids, birthday cakes, hot days, last days of school, for so...More

I have passed Mitchell's many times over the years but never got around to trying it until just the other day. One of the reasons I hadn't tried them until now was because of the parking situation in the neighborhood. Though they have a parking...More
