N’ice Cream – Abbot Kinney’s Ice Cream, Gelato, Sorbet Shop

by Franklin on September 2, 2014

Nice Cream is actually a gelato and sorbet shop, not ice cream. I don’t know about you, but everything from ice cream, gelato, sorbet, soft serve, and froyo is ice cream to me. Yes, I like to generalize like that. Nice Cream opened its doors in 2008, and are dedicated to freshness and having all organic ingredients. They were so popular, the even opened up a small shop on the Venice boardwalk. The owners came from Denmark to LA with a purpose of opening up a gelato shop. I’d say so far that their dreams are being fulfilled.

The biscotti and salted popcorn were a great match together. The biscotti ice cream was sweet and delicious. The bits of biscotti was nice and texturally pleasing. My favorite was the salted popcorn. It wasn’t too sweet, but the little bits of salt and butter and popcorn are there. It isn’t overpowering as I thought it would be, but perfectly subtle. Half way down my cup, I forgot what I ordered (brain fart). Then, the popcorn hit me and I immediately remembered again.

Nice Cream is a nice spot for ice cream if you are on Abbot Kinney or near Venice. I particularly liked the flavors, but I did have one gripe about something. It seemed like the ice cream was too soft and too melted. Maybe it didn’t have enough time to set and harden, but the ice cream had more of a milkshake consistency. Still, Nice Cream manages to wow customers with their funky flavors and delicious ice cream gelato. Hopefully, they’ll turn up the temperature a tad next time.
