After we walked off our lunch, we drove to Ici on College Avenue, a quaint ice cream shop known for fresh ice creams and sorbets with different flavors served daily. The line was out the door despite the cold and rain. There were 3 servers, each helping a group of people from tasting, to scooping, and ringing up the bill. Definitely not very efficient! I ended up trying 6 flavors: pumpkin candied oatmeal, hazelnut, malted vanilla amaretto cherries, honey pistachio, huckleberry, and passion fruit. My favorite was the malted vanilla! The ice cream was sweet but not overpowering and quite refreshing. Their cones were also delicious, fresh and crunchy, with a hint of sugar. For a single scoop costing $2.85 or double scoop at $3.85, it was worth it. Besides ice cream and sorbet, they also serve other delightful sweets and baked goods. I would definitely come back and try their other flavors. It was a pleasant way to end our short adventure in Berkeley.
