Introduced in 1966, the Original Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop was Ghirardelli’s first location that focused on sundaes. The renovated store format showcases the brand’s history in chocolate, sundae making and other fountain and bakery favorites like milkshakes, hot chocolate, brownies, cookies and freshly made daily hot fudge. Other notable aspects of the newly renovated store includes 15 different kinds of sundaes, including Ghirardelli’s World-Famous Hot Fudge Sundae, a replica San Francisco cable car that doubles as a seating area, and antique chocolate making equipment on display.

In addition to the newly remodeled Chocolate Experience Store and the unchanging Ghirardelli-On-The-Go location (which serves a more streamlined menu designed for takeout), Ghirardelli will operate a pop-up store at the square during the construction process to limit disruption and extend the Ghirardelli experience. Design of the multi-phase renovation project has been led by Bay Area firm Eight Inc.

FAQ About Remodel

What is being renovated and why?   
We are excited to announce the second phased project to the flagship stores at Ghirardelli Square.  Introduced in 1966, the Original Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop was Ghirardelli’s first location that focused on sundaes. The renovated store format will showcase the brand’s history in chocolate, sundae making and other fountain and bakery favorites like milkshakes, hot chocolate, brownies, cookies and freshly made daily hot fudge. While the exterior will retain its classic charm, the interior will undergo a much-needed design refresh. Our newly renovated store will include 15 different kinds of sundaes, including Ghirardelli’s World-Famous Hot Fudge Sundae, a replica San Francisco cable car that doubles as a seating area, and antique chocolate making equipment on display. The Original Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop located in the Clock Tower of Ghirardelli Square will be closed for renovation until its reopening in Summer 2023.

How long will the renovation take? 
The renovation of The Original Ghirardelli Ice Cream & Chocolate Shop is expected to re-open in Summer 2023.  

Is Ghirardelli Square closing?
Are the shops closing?  No, Ghirardelli Square will remain open along with Ghirardelli Chocolate Experience and Ghirardelli-On-The-Go located on Beach Street. Plus, there will be a Ghirardelli Pop Up Shop located in the Main Plaza, open throughout the renovation.  

Will I still be able to enjoy Ghirardelli Square favorites like Pick and Mix and Ghirardelli sundaes during renovation? 
Absolutely! All 3 Ghirardelli locations will continue to serve world famous sundaes featuring Ghirardelli's handmade hot fudge. Visit the Ghirardelli Chocolate Experience to enjoy indoor seating and sundaes or to create your one-of-a-kind gift at Pick & Mix. Or stop at the Ghirardelli On the Go or the  Pop-Up-Shop for a quick sundae to go!

Will the renovation affect normal hours of operations?  
Not at all, the hours will remain the same.
