OAKLAND | Little Giant Ice Cream is an Oakland ice-cream shop founded by Neil Rideout and Kevin Best that has a simple focus – quality, tasty, creamy ice-cream in an assortment of creative flavours, using only the best local ingredients.
All ingredients are sourced from Clover Stornetta Farms in Petaluma, and the rotating selection of flavours, which you can see being made, change depending on seasonality of ingredients and customer demand. Flavours include things like “Dirty South”, with caramel ice cream, a bourbon-caramel swirl and candied pecans, “Thai Green Curry” with coconut and almond milk, lemongrass, kaffir lime and thai chillies, and “Green Tea Matcha”.
Everything here is made from scratch, including the ice-cream, waffles, and brownies, and there are lots of collavoratoins with other local, independent businesses. Chocolate is from TCHO and coffee comes from Bicycle Coffee Co. The result of all this is some of the most innovative, tasty ice-cream you’ve tried.
