The shop is quite difficult to find but well worth seeking out. The resent reconstruction by the Bakersfield City planners (Oxymoron) has left Moo creamery without a proper off avenue access.

It’s worth the hunt, because their menu is amazing! All of the ingredients are fresh locally sourced and prepared daily without the use of preservatives or stabilizers. all sauces, relishes and toppings are made from scratch. The buttery brioche buns baked daily and make a good burger, great! The beef used is ground to exacting specifications and cooked to medium rare resulting in fabulous flavor.
The interior decor is clean and modern with fun bovine chotskies throughout. The staff is attentive and friendly. The owners Jessica and Richard share a common dream developed from diverse backgrounds. A native of Bakersfield, Jessica was exposure to the restaurant industry through a high-quality Los Angeles restaurant/bakery, Clementine, while attending UCLA. She found her niche, and after graduating with a degree in Economics and Accounting, she managed Clementine, working under owner/chef Annie Miler. Annie taught Jessica everything about the restaurant business – freshness, seasonality, customer service and community involvement. Jessica also managed Border Grill in Santa Monica under Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken.
Richard was born and raised in Los Angeles and also graduated from UCLA with a degree in History. After completing a culinary school curriculum in Pasadena, he pursued his dream of becoming a chef. Richard worked as a pastry chef for 10 years in LA, at some of the nation’s top restaurants – Patina and Café del Rey. Jessica and Richard met working together at MILK in Los Angeles.
As Jessica developed her vision, she realized that Richard had the same love for burgers and ice cream as she did. Their combined passion led to the concept of moo creamery.
