    Hey you hipster, you've had ice cream at Bi-Rite, now go where the locals have gone since the 50's. After 10pm? Get a ice cream cone anyway; they're open until 11pm.

    The ice-cream here is so good. These guys have been around for decades and their tropical flavors are particularly famous. Also great to take a pint of ice-cream home for the freezer. Beware of lon

    Mitchell's is known for their tropical flavors. I recommend Halo Halo, Ube, Macapuno and their Mexican chocolate is also very good. Great spot!
