    Best ice cream in town, and the spice market they own next door has a huge variety of specialty items. -Tania Peterson, Top Chef Just Desserts

    Get an adventurous flavor, and then try to grab a seat on one of the benches out front. Eat your ice cream while enjoying the atmosphere of quaint Inman Square.

    While Christina's has the staple ice cream flavors, its real draw are the specialty selections. Seasonal favorites like eggnog and fresh mint are unique and delicious. Honey Lavender is also a fave Read more

    Absolutely horrible service. Rushed us out really fast, wasn't busy or near closing. Didn't even get to tell them my size or toppings until after. Ice cream wasn't anything special

    Very fluffy, flavorful ice cream. I tried ginger, and I can't wait to try each of their unique flavors later. P.S. Many tips are saying it's cash only, but that doesn't seem to be the case anymore.

    Try the Coffee Oreo And Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream - Generously packed in a huge waffle cone. This ice cream is really really good - it's so thick you kinda need to chew it.
