Get ready to scream: Doc Burnstein’s is launching ice cream home delivery

Cone-tain your enthusiasm — Doc Burnstein’s Ice Cream Parlor is getting into the delivery game, which means you’ll be able to get a pint of your favorite flavor at home without changing out of pajamas.

The ice cream chain, which started in Arroyo Grande in 2003, launched delivery of its frozen desserts on Friday, through online restaurant delivery company Cafe Runner.

Cafe Runner will deliver pints or quarters of your favorite Doc Burnstein’s ice cream, starting at $8.99. According to the website, there is a $15 minimum for orders. The service will also deliver Doc Burnstein’s ice cream cakes, brownie-cookie ice cream sandwiches, ice cream drumsticks and so-called “dog discs” — frozen soy milk and bacon concoctions for your furry friends.

Delivery is only available to customers in Arroyo Grande, San Luis Obispo or Santa Maria, during normal business hours.
