Dear Bella Creamery is a premium all natural plant-based ice cream shop in Los Angeles, focused on high quality ingredients and creative flavors that satisfy sweet tooth cravings and inspire moments of connectivity and joy. Asian American co-founders, CEO Alice Cherng and COO Belinda Wei commit to using only fresh and high-quality ingredients, void of artificial colors, sweeteners, preservatives, and hydrogenated oils. Dear Bella’s all-natural approach to the craft elicits a balanced sweet and savory flavor profile, pulling back on sugar levels, allowing each ingredient to shine on its own. All ice creams, fillings, and toppings are made-from-scratch and gluten-free. House-made sauces include hot fudge, salted caramel, and magic shell. Toppings and fillings range from chocolate-coated honeecomb and sunflower butter cups, to slow-cooked raspberry jam. Other sweet indulgences include soft-serve, sundaes, sammies, ice cream cakes and rootbeer, kombucha, and nitro cold brew floats and deluxe soft-serve milkshakes.

In addition to Dear Bella’s signature “Hall of Flavors” inspired by Taiwanese culture, culinary cravings, and wanderlust, Cherng and Wei rotate new and seasonal flavors, including ice creams created in collaboration with other local chefs.
