For such a tiny island, it’s pretty great that Coronado has not just one, but two MooTime Creamery locations. One of which can be found inside the Hotel del Coronado, adding even more nostalgia to this already historical hotel. You have dozens of combos to choose from; just pick your ice cream and whatever candies you want to add in and then let them smoosh it all together. If you’re tired of the same ‘ol ice cream cone or cup, order the dessert nachos made from a pile of waffle cone chips topped with three scoops of ice cream or the Moo Tacos. Yes, ice cream tacos.
If you’re on your way to take a long walk off a short pier, specifically the one in Imperial Beach, make sure you stop by Cow-A-Bunga for a sweet treat on your way. This great little shop is right at the entrance to the pier and has been making its ice creams locally since 2000. Have a seat on the outdoor patio or take your ice cream on a stroll along the beach. It also serves gigantic shaved-ice sno cones and delicious coffee drinks.
