New McConnell's on State Street (Santa Barbara)

A few months ago, I wrote about my disappointing visit to McConnell's in SB...

This weekend, I was up in SB again and a new, swanky McConnell's has opened up on State Street (across from Mall)...its a really nice space, and the staff is great. Ice cream was terrific.

I found out that the other McConnell's is franchised, and this one actually owned by McConnell's themselves...maybe that's why I enjoyed it so much more. They also don't sell frozen yogurt, which I don't believe was made by McConnell's anyway.

My favorite item on menu, fwiw, was the salted chocolate chip cookie - maybe the best chocolate chip cookie I've ever had.

For those who live up there, they are having an opening night party on September 4th from 7pm...
