I love getting ice cream from Kaleidoscoops! I'll be honest though, they advertise as a "cafe" as well but they don't actually have any coffee. Which is strange. But hey, ice cream is ice cream.

Nothing special, very average. Had ice cream and shakes. Just average and service was only fair. The malt was over blended and not enough malt added to really taste it.

Like another said below, it's pretty much grocery store quality ice cream - kind of gritty and with ice crystals. I love ice cream! It's my favorite treat by far and I was disappointed.

Like Baskin & Robbins, this place has tons of ice cream flavors. Every flavor we tried was delicious. The scoops were generous as well! If we had more days in Carlsbad, we definitely would have stopped in again.

My roommate and I stoped for ice cream and stayed for lunch. I had steak sandwich. The meat was flavored so well I had to ask what they used. I am a cook at a restaurant. And was very impressed.

We needed a stop at Kaliedoscoops. Our server was extremely pleasant and helpful and our sundaes were excellent and made exactly to our specifications. These folks know customer service!
