Welcome back, everyone, to a blog inspired by another social media holiday. On Sunday, July 18th, it will be National Ice Cream Day! North Hollywood and the NoHo Arts District have tons of delicious ice cream shops nearby including Salt & Straw and McConnell’s. However, so does the rest of Los Angeles! For those living at L and O North Hollywood apartments for rent who want to explore Los Angeles for this delectable holiday, here is a list of the best ice cream shops in Los Angeles to celebrate.

National Ice Cream Day is upon us! To help guide you, here is a list of our favorite ice cream shops in Los Angeles near your NoHo apartments.

The Best Ice Cream Shops in Los Angeles  

Van Leeuwan Artisan Ice Cream

It is impossible to blog about ice cream shops without including Van Leeuwen’s. There are two in Los Angeles. One is in Hollywood and the other is in Culver City. While Van Leeuwen has delicious dairy-based flavors like Earl Grey, it is their vegan flavors that make this ice cream shop so special. The vegan bases range from cashew milk or oat milk combined with coconut cream, cocoa butter, and coconut oil. Must-try vegan flavors are the peanut butter brownie honeycomb and the mint cookies and cream.


Speaking of creativity and Culver City, there is also Coolhaus in the Culver City Arts District. What makes them unique is that all of their flavors can be turned into an ice cream sandwich! They also have some must-try dairy-free flavors such as their dirty mint chip. 

Saffron & Rose 

Persian ice cream, at times, can have an odd texture. That excludes the Persian ice cream from Saffron & Rose over in Westwood. The must-try flavors include the saffron and pistachio as well as the orange blossom. They also have a handful of vegan flavors! Our favorites would be the pink rose and the mango.
