For over 40 years,

Rick's Rather Rich Ice Cream has been the home of 48 exceptional, handmade ice cream creations such as Coffee Molasses Chip, Rose and White Chocolate Ginger. We live, breathe and dream ice cream and never get tired of brightening a customer's day with a big ol' scoop of everyone's favorite dessert —ice cream.

We also make the most delicious and beautifully decorated ice cream cakes (over 20 varieties) around. Or, try our handmade cupcakes, ice cream whoopies, cookies, brownies and pies.

Being located in Silicon Valley, we've done ice cream socials for some of the most famous (and discerning) companies and institutions in the world. Call us for your next corporate event and we'll roll up with our stylish portable freezers.

And for smaller events, we'll provide you with the materials to host it yourself. We're not your typical ice cream shop.
