California Ice Cream Shop Voted Best in the Country

If you’re in the mood for something sweet, look no further than California, where you’ll find the best ice cream shop in the entire country, according to USA Today. Recently, the publication unveiled its list of the top 10 independent ice cream stores in the United States, just in time for summer.

An’s Dry Cleaning in San Diego snagged the coveted first place on the list, followed by Coneflower Creamery in Omaha, Nebraska, at second place, and Owowcow Creamery in New Jersey and Pennsylvania securing third place.

These establishments were recognized for their commitment to using quality, fresh ingredients and their innovative take on everyone’s favorite frozen delight.

An’s Dry Cleaning has built a stellar reputation for its high-quality, small-batch gelato crafted from locally sourced ingredients. Situated at 3017 Adams Ave. in San Diego, this scoop shop welcomes visitors daily from noon until 11 p.m. What makes An’s Dry Cleaning stand out is its array of unique flavors, each named after different fabrics as a nod to the building’s history as a dry cleaning business established in 1934.

Among the fan favorites are Lingerie, a tantalizing blend of strawberry, chocolate, and cream, and Velour, a delectable caramel gelato infused with salt and chocolate-covered waffle cone bits. Not to be missed are Canvas, featuring olive oil and rosemary, and Valencia, a rich dark chocolate gelato with freshly zested oranges.

USA Today’s rankings are rooted in the quality and creativity displayed by these ice cream shops, with an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients and inventive flavors.

Other notable mentions on the list include Leoppold’s Ice Cream in Savannah, Georgia, Peewee’s Ice Cream in Medford, New Jersey, and The Boardwalk Italian Ice & Creamery in Boynton Beach, Florida.

To compile its list, USA Today sought the expertise of a panel of industry professionals to nominate contenders across various categories, allowing readers to cast their votes for their personal favorites.

Additionally, the publication has curated a diverse selection of recommendations for summer activities, from the best beaches and campgrounds to national park lodges and unique accommodation options, ensuring readers have all the information they need for memorable summer adventures.
