Delicious ice cream. Daily selection is limited so need to go with the flow. A memorable favorite of mine is their barley ice cream as I was surprised by how good it was. After waiting in the long line outside you deserve a double scoop!Recommended for:Foodies

Penny is Santa Cruz's only ice creamery that crafts ice cream completely from scratch. Opened by the former pastry chef of Manresa, Kendra Baker, Penny blows away any other ice creamery in town.
In addition to the amazing ice cream, you can have housemade sorbets, bon bons, popsicles, floats and shakes.
The flavors are seasonal and feature locally farmed ingredients - Kendra has a 3 acre farm where the berries used are from. Make sure you sample everything - they encourage it. My faves include bourbon bacon chocolate, fresh mint cocoa, raspberry rose sorbet, cinnamon bon bon and the pluot popsicle.
Ice cream does not get better than this in SC, or the bay for that matter!
