The Craft Creamery, an ice cream shop in Point Loma, is getting the best of both worlds after adding a Moniker Coffee Co. outpost under the same roof.
“We’re a part of Point Loma. We live there…we’re deeply rooted in that community and we’re just trying to create a space our friends and neighbors are trying to be a part of,” said Ryan Sisson, who owns the shop and is CEO of Moniker Group.
Following a “scoops on tap” business model inspired by San Diego’s craft beer bars, The Craft Creamery was founded in 2021 by Alex Bock, an aerospace engineer with a love of ice cream.
Sisson recently purchased the building and held a grand re-opening to welcome a new concept: a coffee shop and ice cream parlor in one spot. The 1,700-square-foot space has been remodeled to display a new vibe including new espresso machines and coffee equipment.
Located at 1302 Rosecrans Street, the shop features a rotating line up of ice cream flavors made by top ice cream companies across the nation and from lesser-known yet delectable mom-and-pop creameries. Visitors can enjoy scoops from companies like San Diego’s Mutual Friend, Molly Moon Ice Cream and Fosselman’s, with scoop flights, affogatos or take home pints available.
The Moniker Coffee side of the venue is the second outpost for the brand (the original is in Liberty Station.) A new summer menu using a house blend from OB Beans will debut soon.
Ice cream happy hour, where kids 12 and under get 50% off, is from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. On Tuesdays, kids scoops are $3.
The Craft Creamery is open from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. daily and Moniker Coffee Co. is open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
