Delicious froyo and cookies! I can't wait to try the other dessert offerings. They are taking all the COVID-19 precautions- ordering online, stickers on the floor for social distancing, and even curbside pickup. The toppings were packaged separately, spoons and napkins were provided. Made my kid super happy today!

The panna cottas were amazing! I tried the matcha and coffee flavors and it was super creamy and rich. The toppings compliment the flavors perfectly and enhance the dessert as a whole. Nice selection of cookies, brownies, and ice cream too. The place is only open for takeout during COVID-19, but will be a cool hangout once things fully open up. Sweet Delights will satisfy your sweet cravings. Family-owned business with super friendly staff. Stop by and give them a try.

We tried the ube crinkle cookies, panna cottas, and white pistachio ice cream cake. All were simply delightful! I need to first RAVE about the UBE crinkle cookies!! They're soft and crumbly yet gooey and perfectly semi sweet with powdered sugar. Please come here to at least have a dozen of those (to share of course) and then don't forget to try their ice creams with plenty of flavors and save room for a panna cotta! I preordered online which made it contactless and very easy for pick up. We customized our cake pretty easily online and there was no hiccups and plenty of parking out front for pick up. So service was 10/10.They made our cake super beautiful for a special mother's birthday! We ordered the white pistachio ice cream cake and was able to customize the toppings. They somehow were able to arrange all the toppings so nicely, we took so many photos of the cake! We basically devoured the cake because the white pistachio was so good and luckily we don't have to wait for another birthday to have another slice because they sell ice cream cakes by the slices too! When I was ordering, they also had lychee ice cream flavor (!!) and basically any other flavor you can think of so go and enjoy :) They also had a few different panna cotta flavors like chocolate, matcha, coffee with fresh berries. My favorite was matcha! My bf's favorite was coffee. Would recommend trying all their flavors to find the one you love the most too!TLDR all the items below we tried was soooo goodUbe crinkle cookies White pistachio ice cream cakeMatcha panna cotta

I ordered a white pistachio ice cream cake with berries on top and it was to die for! I'm never going back to regular cakes and I'll be referring all my friends to order from here. It was ready for pick-up on time. My whole family was super impressed with the cake as well; particularly my mom who received it as a birthday cake.

Wow, the coffee pana cada was soooo good! Also loved their ice cream and drink options. Wish this covid 19 passes soon so that I can bring my family there for a dessert treat!

A great addition to the Laurelwood Shopping Center! The store has a variety of ice cream, frozen yogurt, cookies and cake. I really enjoyed "It's a Goody" - vanilla ice cream with chocolate chips and peanut butter. So good that we bought a tub to enjoy at home.

So clean and so many choices!!! I love how the owner posted her story on the wall. She is from from Foster City and went to San Mateo HS. The yogurt was not super sweet which I love. The berry topping was homemade and delicious! Happy to have a healthier options for desserts and support a local business!

Previously known as “JJ’s Yogurt,” Simple Delights has transformed the store and expanded the menu? Re-opened since May 1st for “takeout” and “curbside pickup,” the store is bright and clean.They have colorful bench seating, table-seating and high-chairs by the window.The menu now includes freshly baked cookies & brownies, custom cakes and ice cream cakes made to order, fruit parfait, cupcakes and more!For me, on-line ordering saves time and it’s convenient. However, if you decide to walk-in, they can take orders just the same. They have their own “curbside pickup” space with a sign! There are plenty of outdoor tables and chairs available too. I enjoy relaxing on outside table with my “green tea ice cream” and free WiFi compliment of Simple Delights. I highly recommend visiting their store and their web-site for yummy ice cream, frozen yogurt, desserts and more!

Simple Delights is a small, local ice cream shop run by friendly staff. They are currently only open for takeout but I hope to see it become a neighborhood hangout spot once the pandemic is over. Its location in Laurelwood Shopping Center means ample free parking, which is a plus.I tried the Ice Cream Family Pack, which comes with two pints of ice cream with four toppings - everything was packaged up nicely for takeout! A good amount for a family sundae night or a 2-week personal supply of ice cream... haha. The ice cream comes from Double Rainbow (based in SF!) - I tried Mocha Almond Fudge and Matcha ice cream - both flavors were really tasty. The toppings were a pretty generous size too. I HIGHLY recommend the brownie and cookie toppings - I put both in the freezer alongside the ice cream and the brownies are so fudgy and chewy! The cookies taste homemade. Overall, would recommend for high-quality ~local~ ice cream and baked goods!!! I love going out for ice cream, which is sadly not as possible these days, and I would say that Simple Delights is a good place to get your ice cream fix (and to also support local business)!

I've been missing JJ's but this is a really great replacement. The new owners have nicely remodeled the space and added several additional dessert items (chocolate mousse tasted great) in addition to good frozen yogurt. Too bad they're limited to to go only due to COVID19, as it looks like it will be a nice place to eventually sit and savor your dessert. Very friendly staff! Definitely give them a try!


What a sweet spot! Didn't realize they were open again... I was just walking by. We picked up a family pack and had an unexpected Sundae night. 2 pints of yummy ice cream and 4 toppings, they had the same package for fro yo. Yum! Clean, not crowded, hand sanitizers for sale at register. Really nice "reopening" with its new refreshed look!

We recently ordered a strawberry ice cream cake from Simple-Delights for my daughter's birthday and it was delicious! The ice cream was so tasty and creamy. Additionally, the strawberry decorations and gold "Happy Birthday" sign with candle topped it off beautifully. The cake was ready right on time and the staff is so welcoming and friendly. We also enjoyed the Pomegranate Raspberry Tart Yogurt and the yummy granola.

I should have taken a picture but I ate my brownie sundae too quickly! Fresh, soft brownies and you can customize the ice cream if you don’t want vanilla. Their cookies are really great too! I will definitely come back!
