    The salted caramel remains justifiably famous, but don’t overlook the subtly spicy honey lavender and nuanced balsamic strawberry.

    yes, the salted caramel is great, but also try the coffee toffee with house-made toffee bits. the two also go well together.

    They all say it, yet, it can't be mentioned enough! -> Salted Caramel (Ice Cream)! Very addictive... Consider this as a Warning! Read more

    The deli across the street has amazing sandwiches. I recommend the roast beef and cheddar.

    The salted caramel is da bomb. Lines are long on weekends, so if you feel like a quart or a pint, walk across the street to Bi Rite (the store) and the freezer in back sells the ice cream too :) Read more

    Eat a Sam's Sundae and marvel at the beauty of olive oil on chocolate ice cream. Afterward, feel full of dairy and shame.

    We're fans of the salted carmel ice cream and Sam's Sundae--chocolate ice cream with bergamot olive oil, maldon sea salt and whipped cream.

    Bi-Rite’s creamery across the street from the market serving local, organic ice cream. The service and atmosphere are very neighborhood and community oriented.

    Is the line worth the wait? YES! Salted Caramel is the staple here for most locals, I add Roasted Banana and find it to be a great balance together.

    The salted caramel is a must, and the balsamic strawberry is especially amazing on a warm day

    A San Francisco staple. All their ice cream is made in-house and awesome! Try the malted vanilla, coffee toffee or the roasted banana. Ice cream cakes are more ice cream than cake. Crazy good.

    Ideally come here on a hot summer day, buy some salted caramel ice cream and space out on the green grass of Mission Dolores down the street! Don't forget to visit the Bi-Rite market down the block!
