    The best in SF. Get the brown sugar, creme brûlée, roasted banana, or ricanelas, or all four.

    Honey lavender is yummy, but olive oil flavor is divine. Salted caramel is overrated and too sweet.

    Everyone loves salted caramel ice cream but I personally love roasted banana! Really strong banana flavors. It's busy so prepared to wait in line for like 20 mins or so.

  • Irene M.

    The best flavor (malted vanilla) is on the express menu, so skip the long line and go to the window on the right.

    2 small scoops: salted caramel and Ricanelas (cinnamon with snickernoodle bits )

    Salted caramel is decent, balsamic strawberry big disappointment, honey lavander hmm that one is like almost eating a soap bar from aux-a-provance from France. Verdict not worth the wait after all.

    Good ice cream - always a line, but moves quickly. Can try different flavors (Earl Grey is tasty!) and the sundaes are good too. Bring an appetite!

  • Caroline D.

    Their ice cream is amazing, and the cashiers are really nice about giving you samples! Highly recommend the Honey Lavender and Orange Cardamom. Salted Caramel sample was too sweet imo

    Orange cardamom and earl grey are good ice cream combo.

    I had a wonderful lemon gingersnap ice cream and my friends loved the honey lavender and the earl grey flavors.

  • Alice C.

    Get a ice cream sandwich with your choice of ice cream and your choice of cookie... Mine was incredible, I dream of the day I can go back to Bi-Rite 😍😍

    I liked that they let me try many different flavours before I decided which to take. I didn't enjoy salted caramel as many do, but I had no problem to pick.

  • Kaitlin Y.

    Spring 2015 seasonal flavor to try: Meyer Lemon ✔️

  • Kimberly N.

    Ricanelas ice cream is delicious if you like a cookie in ice cream form. Bits of brown sugar cookie are in the ice cream.

  • Greg P.

    Honey lavender ice cream.

    Greg Price · May 4

    So many great flavors! Ask for samples and try the different options! My personal favorites are sea salt caramel, honey lavender, and creme brûlée
