Great news ice cream lovers! Marianne’s Ice Cream is opening its 2nd location…in Aptos! Marianne’s is legendary among local (and not-so-local) ice cream aficionados. It’s been in operation since 1958 at a single location on Ocean Street in Santa Cruz. And now, Marianne’s has the good taste to be opening a second location, after over half a century, in the Seacliff neighborhood of Aptos.
The new Marianne’s location is going in at the corner of State Park Drive and Center Avenue, across from the Snow White Drive-In and Manuel’s Mexican Restaurant…and just down the street a ways from Pizza-1. And, of course, it is also located directly across from the entrance to Seacliff State Beach.
The new operation should be up and running in the next couple of months, just in time for the warmer weather. Stay tuned!
