Balboa Ice Cream opened its doors in September, much to the delight of the neighborhood. As you drive, bike, or walk along San Jose Avenue, you'll frequently see the groups of people waiting for ice cream. And it's worth the wait! And it's not just scoops; they also serve smoothies, acacia bowls, banana splits, and shakes.
You may recognize Miguel from Tasty Coffee, right down the street. Miguel and his family not only have been serving our neighborhood for years, but they also are residents of Mission Terrace. Nothing quite as great as being able to support a truly-local business.
And the variety of flavors? Yes, please. Make mine a double-scoop!
