About Doc Burnstein’s Ice Cream Lab

Doc Burnstein’s Ice Cream Lab features hand-crafted, super-premium ice cream presented in glass dishware in the only nostalgic ice cream parlor on the Central Coast.

Come in and see our model trains running around the parlor and over bridges, even through mountains and into the party room. You can also watch through the Lab viewing window as the Doc and his Lab Assistants make their super-creamy inventions right before your eyes. Make your next birthday party or special event memorable by holding it at Doc Burnstein’s, or inquire about having Doc set up a sundae bar at your location.

The original Doc Burnstein’s Ice Cream Lab is located in the Historic Village of Arroyo Grande, on the California Central Coast.
