Just came back from the Montrose section of Glendale (not too far from Descanso Gardens off the 2 Freeway) and discovered this Scandinavian ice cream place called Paradis. Wonderful ice cream, almost like a gelato, light, smooth, and really good flavors. I'm an ice cream/gelato fan, and this is one of the best I've had in the LA area. And I"m not affiliated in any way with the store -- just happened to be walking by after a visit to the Gardens.
