Eli R.Eli Reyes: Shorter lines than Bi-Rite and the ice cream flavors are so different. Try the Secret Breakfast (Bourbon and Corn Flakes) and the Blue Bottle Vietnamese Coffee - those are a MUST!

Shirley L.Shirley Liu: I still like the secret breakfast and blue bottle Vietnamese iced coffee best, but make sure to ask to taste (peanut butter curry, olive oil, and malted milk chocolate) :)

Minyi S.Minyi Shih: Combine Secret Breakfast (bourbon w/cornflakes) & Blue Bottle Vietnamese Coffee flavors to get the perfect cup!
