On a warm Walnut Creek day, going to the San Francisco creamery is the thing to do! They have an outside order window if you need your ice cream in a hurry!

This is what you expect from an old time Ice cream parlor. They are over sized sundaes -which are great! Lots of ice cream flavors to choose from. A lot of different sundaes. The Kitchen Sink is fun for a group. The only reason for the 4 is the food. It is fine, but not great. Go for the ice... More

My husband and I heard about an ice cream named the kitchen sink sundae, so we had to go and try it out. Wow best ever. It was a miniature kitchen sink full of ice cream, nuts and lollies, dripping with flavoured toppings of your choice. We couldn't finish it all so the friendly wait-staff bagged it up for us...

Chocolate marble with hot fudge is my favorite. A fun place with nice staff and it always entertaining watching the tables full of people trying to finish the kitchen sink sundae.

My wife and I are often at the Creamery - usually for their wonderful ice cream (whether a cone or creations) but have also had meals here. It is comfort food well prepared. Burgers, fish and chips, sandwiches are all very good and reasonably priced. Their ice cream - the main attraction - is terrific and very reasonably priced. For... More

Ice cream is my favorite dessert, especially chocolate, and The San Francisco Creamery has so many interesting flavors. I recommend: Egg Nog, Apple Pie, Pecan Praline and of course, Chocolate Lover's dream. This place also has a full menu of food that looks and smells wonderful but since we only came here for ice cream, I can't comment on it.

Great for special occasions with kids or just a couple looking to enjoy rich ice cream and flavorful sauces. Go back to the Creamery and watch it being made.

The service is bad. The waiters are rude. They always give you a wrong order. And when they fix it they use the same old melted ice cream. I don't recommend it at all. You pay too much for too little.

Delicious pizza and nuggets for the kids and whatever tickles our fancy. Any choice you can't go wrong! It also tastes amazing! Believe it or not their house salad is the BEST! We love coming here and will do so for years to come! Plus amazing ice cream after! The kids go crazy when they find out we're coming here!... More
