          About Us

          Recess started as the dream of Stephen Lau, whom everyone knew him called him, Uncle Lau. Serving the greater Southern California for over 45 years with his savory BBQ ribs, he wanted to retire and see and serve the different states in a gourmet ice cream truck. Serving ice cream wherever he went. Unfortunately his health prevented him from traveling so his daughter, Connie Lau, took over the operations. With her love of cooking and experimenting, she created Recess Ice Cream with a menu that touches the heart of being a kid as well as some innovative fusion sweet treats from her child hood that will sure delight all your tastebuds. Recess also has a sister company for craft services. Craft services allows you to experience all full circle all the delicious recipes from Uncle Lau's Island BBQ, GoGo Waffles, Chef on Wheels Catering and of course our Recess ice cream!

          We proudly serve Lappert's ice cream. You can now get some of their delicious flavors outside of Hawaii with Recess truck. The SUPER PREMIUM ice creams contain NATURAL ingredients. Ice creams with a high butter fat content and low overrun (very little air whipped into the product) are SUPER PREMIUM. The manufacturing process results in a thicker, smoother, richer and creamier texture. Using only the freshest and purest ingredients, fresh cream and milk and flavor the creams with pure extracts. What it all comes down to is Great Taste!

          The Recess truck can be seen serving happy customers throughout the Los Angeles, Riverside, Sand Diego counties and at large holiday, music and food events. Recess will blow your guests away at privately catered parties with our fun truck wrap and delicious concoctions. Our frozen treats are perfect for consumer giveaways and brand activations.

          Our company hired Recess Truck for an employee appreciation reward. They came out and parked in our lot for 90 minutes and served over 40 employees. They were professional, efficient and super nice. Everything went smoothly. The ice cream was rich and creamy and our employees are still talking about the french toast ice cream sandwiches. It really was a great experience. And Connie was super cool. We would and most likely will hire them again soon.

          They got here early for our event. Very professional. Very quick. The Cookie Monster flavor - combo of cookie n cream & chocolate chip cookie dough - was awesome. Lots of banana splits. Everyone is stoked. Their helpings are also generous so you won't feel like you're getting ripped off. The owner is a breeze to work with btw if you want to have them at your next event. I also had the strawberry, mango, & green tea mochi - strawberry was the best. Lots of people raving about the peach tea Popsicles though I didn't try one myself.

          My friend and I loved the 1980's ice cream trucks that would drive around our neighborhoods, so we were crazed to check this truck out. We each chose a different flavor and was shocked at how intensely rich and creamy the flavors were. We looked at this truck and realized its a brand new truck, totally OCD clean both outside and inside, and the workers were really nice and patient. Its so not your neighborhood ice cream truck of the 80's, but a really modern and sophisticated take on a nostalgic pastime. They have fresh made-to-order french toast ice cream sandwiches and they were AMAZING!!!
