Do you have a sweet tooth or are you looking to stock up on Ghirardelli chocolate? If so, the Ghirardelli Factory Outlet & Ice Cream Shop is the perfect place. Take a seat at the ice cream bar and treat yourself to a monster ice cream sundae, soda fountain classics like shakes and malts, or pick up a box of Ghirardelli chocolate for home. Located in Lathrop, right off I-5, the Ghirardelli Factory Outlet Ice Cream Shop is a quick stop on your way in or out of town!
This place has great icecream and a good variety of chocolate. The menu is the same as the Ghiradelli in Disneyland. There are lots of cute souvenirs to bring back with you if you are visiting.
Omg, this place is the best you can get all sorts of chocolate of course but you could also go to their dessert area and order all kinds of desserts like I did oh my gosh you will just love it. I come here whenever I pass through and sometimes I have to drive 100 mph (not really) to make it before it closes. You will understand why
Nice place to stretch your legs. They have ice cream! Of course all of the Ghirardelli delights. Great place to grab a hostess gift or something if needed. Great selection of chocolates. Wish I could buy the whole store! Worth a look see. Rather small, but clean and neat and organized.
Small but had lots to offer if you like ghirardelli. If you live nearby and like ice cream or chocolate it's worth the drive.
Great prices on all their chocolate products. Lines for their ice cream shop is also so much shorter than the San Francisco location. Staff were also very helpful and nice. Overall great experience and highly recommended if you’re on the 5 Freeway
Finally stopped to have dessert on our way back to Sacramento from Livermore. Small store but has the best ice cream ever! Best part is you don’t have to wait in those long lines like you do in San Fran. Bonus, you can even find a seat! You don’t have to go outside or eat standing up. Will be back soon!
Great sundays and even better deals on Chocolate...come here for great (anything with) chocolate.
For me, the whip cream on the drink you're seeing below/above tasted off. My cousin had ordered the same thing as me and said that they put salt in hers, to "even the sweetness". It was definitely not a good mix, and while other orders might taste better than the rest, it was okay for me.
Wide variety of Ghirardelli products not found anywhere else. The ice cream sundaes were great!
Love the factory store! You gotta go. Ice cream, sundaes, oh... and chocolate! I love the SALTED CARAMEL (whatever). The young adults who work there are super cool and always will to help. I got 75% off on a special they ran... go see for yourself. Samples as well. Try not to go...I dare you. Bet you can't. I double dog dare you. Enjoy the next best thing to Willy's place...(keep in mind, that place was make believe)... you gotta watch that movie with a kid... watch both versions but think of the old one.
Considering we are still in the middle of the pandemic it was still a pleasant experience, staff was friendly, and made the ice cream quickly, looked just like the pictures in fact, was easy to get to and I didn't wait to get inside on a Saturday.
Nice place to stop by. Tasty decadent Cocoa. They used to have lot of good deals on chocolates before covid. We always stopped by to get chocolate when in the area. Now half of the place is empty and choice is very limited. The deals of by 3 get 2 free are gone. When visited in July of 2020 they had no chocolate bags at all.
They have all sorts of Ghirardelli chocolates and they have a great selections. We also got a vanilla ice cream in a cone and a chocolate shake. Loved it and we r craving for more.
Face mask is required. 6 ft. distance, etc. The store/ice cream parlor was very clean and organized. The employee greeted us and made herself available but wasn't pushy at all. I appreciate that. The menu offered a large selection of sundaes and ice cream treats. I had a large cookies and cream shake. It was pricy at $7.95 but wow was it awesome and rather large indeed. I had a hard time finishing it. For an occasional treat it was perfect and so creamy and yummy. The gift shop was fun with lots of wonderful gift ideas. Highly recommend you check it out.
On our way home from the Livermore Outlets, we decided to come by and stop for a treat. And, as usual, we were not disappointed. All 3 of us had the hot fudge sundaes. I had mine with the strawberry ice cream, the fudge, and the whipped cream. The topping was over the top...next time I'll leave it off. But my wife seemed to enjoy hers the way it came. My sister had the caramel sundae, and she enjoyed hers as well. I think this will be a standard stop each time we're in this area. Great place to visit, shop, and enjoy a treat.
Cute little shop with a large assortment of chocolate options including seasonal. Excited to try the intense dark salted caramel cascade and the dark chocolate raspberry. Sat outside and enjoyed the classic hot fudge sundae dessert after buying some Valentine's day candy.
Nice stop along the 5 for a break. If you are looking for the famous hot fudge sundae, this is the place. Also sells chocolate squares and bars, somewhat discounted but not a real bargain as you must by multiples to get the savings. But hey, its chocolate 🍫
Really popular place, do to covid-19 you do have to stand and wait in line to get in. They have the most delicious candies and ice cream for a Chocolate Outlet in our area. Their customer service is excellent! Hostesses are well-informed on many other products in the store. Come try it you'll like it and will be back:)
Great tasting treats and a clean store! I had the Nob Hill Chill, which was like a rich chocolate milkshake with mini chocolate chips on top. The kids had a classic hot fudge sundae and the Treasure Island sundae. They demolished the ice cream quickly. Bring some cash because it is as expensive as their chocolate is rich lol.
You can't ever go wrong with Ghirardelli chocolate. However, I went out for an ice cream yesterday & was disappointed that they did not have the flavor I was craving. I recently went to dinner at a restaurant and they served Ghirardelli chocolate chocolate chip ice cream on their dessert menu. It was amazing! I went to Ghirardelli on a mission, but not only found out that they did not have it, but I was told they never carry it. Chocolate lovers like me see Ghirardelli as a "Chocolate" company. So having multiple chocolate ice cream choices is not an unreasonable request. Secondly, I would have given five stars, but the prices were also sky high! Though I do not mind indulging periodically, a family with children can quickly be $50-$60 in the hole just for ice cream. That would pay for many, many gallons of ice cream at the store. Again Ghirardelli, step up your game.
Be ready to spend $10 on a Sunday. They are very good, come with a chocolate, and the staff are so nice. There's a cute gift shop, too, but no bathroom access during covid-19. They are very careful about cleanliness. Drive north along the access road to the gas station for nice clean bathrooms.
An enjoyable day with the birthday girl who turned 8. This was our first time visiting Ghirardelli and it was our first stop of the day. The birthday girl had Cookies & Cream with sprinkles and, she said it was, "good!" Her grandmother and I loved our selections as well. Although businesses are opening up, we were a little sad to find out the tours will no longer take place. Happy that the business is in our backyard.👍👏🌺💞
