Ghirardelli Ice Cream & Chocolate Shop
660 Cannery Row, Monterey, 373-0997
Who says ice cream fountains are a thing of the past? In the middle of Cannery Row, you can sip on a chocolate milkshake through two straws with your sweetheart, while watching the tide roll in and out. This writer recommends the chocolate because you’re at Ghirardelli’s, after all, famous for their premium chocolate—which doubles as their super power. You can also sit inside at a booth or in the front courtyard while enjoying classic or malted flavors. Or go next level with a “Quake Shake,” infused with a chocolate bar. Whipped cream and caramel toppings optional, mouthwatering not so optional.
