Most of the ice creams are GF and they also offer GF cones for an additional charge.
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
— Not Much
They were great about saying they could get the ice cream from new buckets to avoid cross contamination, but their GF cones are made on the same machinery as regular ones - I learned this later after I had to sprint to the bathroom due to being glutened.
I loved the ice creamery! It was really cute, and I felt very safe. There were lots of gluten free options on the night that I was there, and they even have delicious house made ice cream cones! As soon as I told them about how I needed gf, they explained how they would go sanitize in the back, get out a clean bin of ice cream, the whole nine yards. Again, I felt very safe and I loved this place!
Homemade ice cream type place- cute shop & friendly knowledgeable staff. Even had GF waffle cone.
Gluten free waffle cones. Their website says they always have two dairy free options, and all but one of the flavors when I was there were gluten free. And, I feel great the next day!
An amazing find. Delicious and unique flavors, made onsite from local ingredients. Delicious!
Yummy and unique ice cream. They will even soup you ice cream from a fresh bucket in the back to avoid cross contamination if requested!
If you are a foodie, get excited- the Penny Ice Creamery was made for lovely palates who appreciate the subtle luxury of Earl Grey ice cream and bitter salted caramel. All the flavors are handmade onsite with locally sourced, seasonal fare. They offer GF waffle cones- not celiac friendly as they do not have a dedicated waffle iron- but perfect for the kidlings who can take a bit of cross contamination. Taking cues from a local, the kids opted for the toasted marshmallow fluff topping. It was as if the clouds parted and the God of S'mores bestowed the perfect roasted 'mallow.... mmmm heavenly goodness! Another "must stop" while in Santa Cruz!!
The waffle cones are not celiac safe because they are made on the same equipment as the regular cones. I had maple bacon blackberry walnut ice cream scooped from a fresh container with a clean scoop. It was delicious.
AMAZING. Homemade waffle cones, local & organic flavors, and fun toppings (they actually take a blowtorch to toasted marshmallow)!! They even used separate utensils and tubs when I told them I "had an allergy." The line was out the door, and for good reason.
beautifully made gluten free waffle cones. what a treat!
