Simple Delights took over J J's Ice Cream and Frozen Yogurt at the Laurelwood Shopping Center in San Mateo in October 2019 when the owner decided to retire. J J's had been in business for over 30 years, and we would like to continue the tradition of a small, local business.
Our goal is to provide simple but quality treats, and to serve everyone with a smile and respect. In addition to our ice cream and frozen yogurt menu items, we have expanded our menu to include homemade toppings, desserts, and custom cakes. Come visit us for a simply delightful experience at Simple Delights!
"The Official Ice Cream of San Francisco"
- former Mayor Willie Brown
Most of our ice cream flavors are from Double Rainbow. The company was founded in 1976 in San Francisco by two childhood friends, and it has remained a family-owned and operated business for over 40 years. All of their ice creams are certified Kosher by the Orthodox Union.
From time to time, we serve some flavors from another company or our own home-made as well. No matter where the source is you will find our ice cream simply delightful.
We couldn’t limit our frozen yogurt to just one source, but rather, we hand-picked the very best flavors from two different companies:
Both companies produce smooth and creamy tasting frozen yogurt flavors by using premium quality ingredients and with masterful blending techniques gained from many years of experiences. Both brands’ yogurts are carefully crafted to contain beneficial probiotic Live and Active Yogurt Cultures. They contain 10 times the National Yogurt Association’s requirement to feature the Live and Active Cultures seal. Both yogurts are also OU-D Kosher certified.
