Hans' Homemade Ice Cream in Santa Ana is a perfectly typical American ice cream parlor, with marble-top tables and stained-glass lamps hanging from the ceiling. Behind the counter, Hans himself makes all the ice-cream fresh daily, in a variety of sometimes 60 to 70 flavors at once. Try everything from classic favorites like vanilla and Rocky Road to more interesting flavors like licorice or pumpkin. For USD40, Hans will even custom make you your very own flavor of ice cream to take home with you. In addition to the ice cream, Hans' serves up other frozen delights like frozen bananas, chocolate covered ice cream sandwiches (on a stick) and milkshakes. Hans' also serves up some delicatessen with sandwiches and the like.
For those times you can't decide between sweet and savory, Bruxie has you covered. Bruxie specializes in, as one might suspect, "Bruxies" which are Belgian-style waffles turned into sandwiches. Diners can choose to go the sweet route with Nutella and banana, S'Mores or Creme Brulee Bruxies. For a more savory route, Bruxies includes combinations like the Bruxie burger, green eggs and ham Bruxie or the hot pastrami Bruxie. Round out your meal with some waffle-cut fries or even go authentic and get a straight-up traditional Belgian waffle.
Cupcakes are finally getting much-deserved attention like other cakes and sweets thanks to Sprinkles, a cupcake bakery that originated in Beverly Hills. Now it is a chain only in selected—or lucky—cities, and Newport Beach is one of them. This boutique cupcake shop has simple and contemporary décor, with the cupcakes displayed behind a floor-to-ceiling glass panel. Each of the 22 flavors is beautifully handcrafted, and each order is nicely packaged with a paper box and wooden utensils with the store logo. Don't expect to walk in and out of Sprinkles like other bakeries—the line always goes outside the door, and each order takes a little wait time; but flavor and moistness are guaranteed.
