THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Ghirardelli Chocolates Restaurant Review

: This may be ho-hum for California residents, but this chain of old-fashioned ice cream parlors is enough to draw us to Waikiki. It’s a brightly colored storefront with period art and a tile floor of the kind you don’t see anymore. Here you can have real ice cream sodas, hand-dipped milk shakes and wondrous massive sundaes topped with hot fudge, dollops of whipped cream, nuts and cherries. We’re hoping someday to finish the Earthquake, eight scoops of ice cream, eight toppings, all for $19.
