Reviews 4.9/5

Zachary Van Stanley 5/5

I really enjoyed these sweet treats. The different bases were really fun to see, and the person helping us was very patient and friendly. They were out of the waffle cookie for the sample platter, but they were able to substitute it for a cone. The cookie sandwich was delicious with only a tiny amount of grainy texture to alert you to the gluten-free nature. They were very allergen conscious and considerate. Definitely worth a visit.

My Le 4/5

San Diego’s very first vegan ice cream parlor located in a business park area. Kula provides vegan, gluten free, and dairy free ice cream flavors using different bases such as coconut, almond, cashew, sunflower and even natural sweeteners. Not only do they serve ice cream but also ice cream sandwiches, floats, and shakes. If you’re craving for more, you can purchase a pint here or at a local grocery store or at various farmers market.

There were 12 flavors on this particular night. No coffee flavor so I sampled Chai Latte (coconut base) and was not impressed. Tried Cocoa Cookie Monster (sunflower base), Oh Fudge (coconut base), Chocolate Olive Oil (almond base) and Lava Cake (almond base). Pretty much went all chocolate and I found that I lean towards almond base.

The Lava Cake was the top contender with chocolate cake chunk and chocolate ganache. Chocolate Olive Oil was the second best on my list both with almond base.

The other girls thought Lava Cake was sweet. I thought it was perfect but that was 3 against 1. Make sure you sample before you buy!

Located in a business park, off of the always busy Mira Mesa Blvd this spot is a hidden gem for really great ice cream. They are all GLUTEN FREE, and DAIRY FREE, with cookies and other treats available. Can make Ice cream sandwiches, and Shakes as well. Josh, was very friendly and loves what he does and it shows. My partner and I both got the chocolate lava cake (best flavor in the store), and I also got the nectarines sorbet. 10/10 would recommend to anyone for a little good-feeling treat!

Jennifer Ellis 5/5

Every flavor I try, I love! Vegan ice cream made locally! And, my husband is gluten free so an extra added bonus that their ice cream is also gluten free. Thank you Kula Ice Cream! (oh and let’s not forget the name... Kula, as a yoga teacher I mean even the name of the ice cream is perfect for me! :)

Brooks Fuller 5/5

Hidden gem. Delicious ice cream. Lots of great GF and DF options. We did the sampler and we loved it! Lava cake ice cream was my favorite. They also sell GF/DF cakes.
