    Hard to go wrong at this ice cream spot known for its inventive flavors, but Vietnamese Coffee and Secret Breakfast are two menu staples for a reason. Sundaes are worth the splurge.

    Everyone seems to try the famous Secret Breakfast flavor, which has bourbon and cornflakes, but I like a combo of Vietnamese Blue Bottle Coffee and Dulce de Leche if you can get it. Read more

    ice cream was delicious - besides the classic chocolate mango/carrot was a nice change. Huge scoops but for $4 for one and $6 incl tax for two one should expect that. even trying before ordering is ok

    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) :)

    you can basically try every taste that you want - personal favourite is always black sesame!! Blue bottle Vietnamese coffee is also a good one if you like really, really rich coffee flavour

    Humphry Slocombe has earned the right to it's quirky flavors because they’re actually good. Really good. Like, kill-the-guy-before-you-in-line good. Read more

    I know everyone goes for the secret breakfast, but I'm more traditional so I like the Tahitian Vanilla and Much better Pecan it's smooth and creamy at the same time. Try it out you won't regret it.

    Humphry Slocombe boasts beet, foie gras and cheese ice cream, among others. The prosciutto ice cream, studded with salted pig steeped in milk with fennel seeds and black pepper, is a local favourite. Read more

    Secret breakfast seems to be the most popular but my vote goes to the blue bottle vietnamese coffee flavor. Has lots of more exotic flavors too!

    So many great flavors! Try Harvey Milk + Honey Graham, Horchata Rose, Pumpkin Nut, and Dark Chocolate Smoked Sea Salt. Even their Tahitian Vanilla is delicious. Basically you can't go wrong.

    Everyone raves about the Secret Breakfast (bourbon and cornflakes), but the true winners here are Blue Bottle Vietnamese Coffee and Harvey Milk (honey and honey grahams). Creamy delights.

    We love the innovative flavors but we also love that we can stroll down to the Ferry Building location when we’re staying downtown. We’re currently obsessed with the Hot Toddy Sunday.

    this place is the bomb - and there's never a line like at Bi-Rite. Worth the out of the way trip to this corner of the Mission. If they have the prosciutto ice cream....GET IT.

    Here's Your Damn Strawberry! Just one of the top class ice cream flavours available here. Blue Bottle Vietnamese, Secret Breakfast, and the McEvoy Olive Oil are also super tasty!

    Happy to let you taste as many flavors as you like -- and they offer a half scoop if you just need a taste. Secret breakfast and The Bakers way were two solid options

    Great funky ice cream flavors. Yes, that's what they're known for. What surprised me was the deft had at balance. Great job guys.

    Mind-blowingly good ice gream. The chocolate smoked sea salt flavor may sound bizarre, but the combination of the rich chocolate with salt creates an explosion in the mouth!

    Either the darling or the dud of the Mission, depending on who you ask. Pretentious ice cream people will say Bi-Rite has better texture / consistency; non-pretentious will love the funky flavors.

    Secret breakfast and black sesame were both amazing. Grab a coffee from the place next door to drink with your ice cream! Best coffee I've had in awhile too!

    You can't go past the Vietnamese iced coffee ice cream. Or any of the other flavours, for that matter. Or the fact that each scoop is the size of a prize-winning pumpkin.

    Blue Bottle Vietnamese Coffee is my new favorite. And their vanilla flavor is the best among all vanilla flavors I've ever had in any ice cream.

    The Secret Breakfast is out of this world. sweet and savory and salty all at once. Amazingly surprising flavor, I should have gotten a bigger scoop!

    If you try two flavors, go with the Secret Breakfast and Malt Chocolate. They don't split a single scoop so just get a double and be happy.

    Can't decide between Secret Breakfast & Chocolate Smoked Seasalt? You don't have to! They sell 1/2 & 1/2 pints.

    They're ferociously inconsistent. One bite is the most amazing thing you've ever had (secret breakfast, lime basil) to downright amateur (every other sorbet).

    One scoop each of Secret Breakfast and Blue Bottle Vietnamese Coffee. (But be sure to first try a few samples of other flavors!)

    Fact: it's perfectly acceptable to visit Bi-Rite Creamery and Humphry Slocombe in one afternoon because the walk between them is uphill both ways.

    This place serves the best ice cream in SF. Nothing beats Secret Breakfast! And yeah, I've been to Bi-Rite, Smitten, Mitchell's and Mr. and Mrs. (My life's dream is to develop Type II diabetes)

    Went for their secret breakfast flavor. At the beginning it wasn't too impressive but later on the cornflake really is working well with the bourbon and vanilla. 4dollar 1 scope

    Ice cream and sorbet is the deal here, just a few flavors but some of them really good. Ask for a sample before choosing yours!

    It's all good. The line is long because everyone tried flavors before buying. So get on the bandwagon and don't feel bad about doing the same thing.

    Everything is good, but the Secret Breakfast is above and beyond. Bourbon ice cream with corn flakes in it? Sign me up. - Kellie, Community Manager

    At Humphrey Slocombe, organic milk and seasonal flavors are used. For winter, try the pumpkin five spice, which tastes like pumpkin pie. Read more

    Try the Harvey Milk & Graham Cracker - Kind of like Three Twins Land of Milk and Honey... But with graham crackers! And a bit richer, too.

    Elvis Ice cream is the jam! Though, I wish their spoons were a little smaller... they're the compostable ones and the edges are a bit sharp.

    Try the candy cap mushroom ice cream - Yes yes yes yes yes! It's back! Candy cap mushrooms are truly a miracle of nature. (They're the ones that taste like maple syrup!)

    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!

    You can ask to taste everything behind the counter, but the Secret Breakfast is far and away the best. Distant second? Salted caramel.
