If you have lived in San Diego for a while but don’t know about Mariposa Ice Cream Shop in Normal Heights… you’re missing out! This legendary homemade ice cream shop is in Uptown San Diego, in the Normal Heights neighborhood. Whether or not you will care for their classic rock vibe inside their shop, their homemade ice cream is ROCKING!
The lines will be long in the summer nights, but let’s face it, it’s San Diego and it’s almost always warm enough for…delicious creamy homemade ice cream.
If you ask them what their most popular flavor is, they will tell you it’s Mexican Chocolate. And don’t be fooled by what you see in their transparent freezer — there’s ice cream underneath that you can’t see. I learned this my SECOND trip there! You must look at their main menu on the wall for a run down of all the flavors.
Mariposa also offers seating inside and out. Need to sample a flavor before going all in? Just ask!
Now go — gather your loved ones and get your homemade ice cream fix ON!
