Bringing some of the summer’s warmest temperatures and sunniest days, it’s fitting that July is National Ice Cream Month. Celebrate all month long–or just for one day–with a frozen treat from one of these local La Jolla favorites:
7470 La Jolla Blvd
Situated near the waters of Windansea Beach, Baskin Robbins has been serving up ice-cold treats to locals and visitors alike since 1945. Whether it’s after a morning of surfing at Marine Street beach, or during a lazy summer afternoon, there’s no better way to cool off in the summer heat than with a Baskin Robbins cone: Celebrate National Ice Cream Month with one of their seasonal flavors, like America’s Birthday Cake, or order a classic cone with Pralines ‘n’ Cream.
915 Pearl St # A
For more than 20 years, Froglander’s Frozen Yogurt has been a top La Jolla destination for anyone in search of something sweet. Aside from selling regular frozen yogurt flavors, Froglander’s also offers sugar-free, non-fat, and low-calorie frozen yogurt options, as well as more than 40 different toppings. The options at this spot are plentiful: order a cup of froyo, share a banana split, or build your own shake or smoothie to enjoy in the summer sun.

Bobboi Natural Gelato
8008 Girard Ave
Nestled near La Jolla Cove, Bobboi is one of La Jolla’s newest destinations for sweet-lovers. The gelato at Bobboi is made with all-natural ingredients for supreme freshness in every cup or cone, with flavors ranging from classic to unique. This spot is especially diet-friendly: Bobboi offers sorbet, milk-based gelato, and soy-based gelato, so there’s something on the menu for everyone! We suggest ordering a cone of their pistachio gelato.
7501 La Jolla Blvd
Fresh is the name of the game at this sweet spot. Yogi Topi is an especially healthy option for customers because of its self-serve feature, where customers can dispense how much yogurt they want, and choose their own fresh toppings. Yogi Topi offers fresh classics like chocolate and vanilla, as well as specialty flavors that change with the season. For a healthy yet tasty treat, try the original tart flavor with strawberries and mango.
Shakeaway La Jolla
723 Pearl St
Recognized as the world’s largest milkshake bar, the U.K.-based Shakeaway made its debut in La Jolla just last year. With over 180 different flavors and millions of combinations to choose from, Shakeaway is the perfect place to get cool and creative in the summer. Besides offering awesome milkshakes–we love the Hershey’s Take 5– Shakeaway also offers soda shakes, frozen yogurt, and smoothies. With so many options available, it can be tough deciding what to order, so be sure to check out our guide to ordering a milkshake at Shakeaway!
These 5 locations are the perfect venues to celebrate a classic dessert. From the bottom of our heart–and stomach–to you: Happy National Ice Cream Month!
