Took granddaughter, who wanted to return after having been here a few weeks ago. She got a $6.50 serving of blue velvet ice cream with marshmallows, caramel sauce and chocolate covered pretzels. It looked really good except there were so many pretzels, six or seven...More

So, seems like a cool concept, they make your ice cream right then and there with fun liquid nitrogen and "fresh" ingredients. But the reality is that artisanal and the "fancy" ice cream that we have all become used to is made by people who...More

Location of the store is...everything in Pasadena is a cluster nowadays. There's a pay structure right next door. But if the only place you're visiting is this one, then find metered spots around town. It's a small store front so I can see it getting...More

The strawberry ice cream is very good, and it's fun to watch all of the nitrogen must ooze out of the machines. I definitely recommend at least once even At $7 for a scoop. If you score a groupon it's definitely worth it. Note there...More

This is a fun place to bring the little ones and have them watch ice cream made. The ice cream in itself is ok but the "show" more than makes for it.

Very delicious ice cream made right before your eyes. Not sure how it worked, but you pick the flavor, step back, and watch the machine grind it out. Very friendly staff, clean restaurant, great location. Highly recommended for dessert!

Chocolate ice cream was just what the doctor ordered after a spicy Thai curry. It was luxuriously rich and decadent. I ordered it in waffle cup and that was a disappointment, it tasted a bit stale.

We are huge fans of Grom and Amorio the international chains of incredible ice creams. The Laboratory in NY is really good too. They are my top. Now this new chain Ice-cream Lab excites me a lot. The concept is promising and it really is...More
