The ice cream here is DIVINE. I had a big, fat, juicy Sundae: one scoop of a praline ice cream and one of a butterscotch with whipped cream and salted caramel sauce drizzled all over it. It was sooooO good. The scoops are really nice...More

We were brought here by a friend who's a local in San Fran. The ice cream is delicious and worth the waiting time in the queue.

I always tell everyone, I'd fly to San Francisco in a heartbeat if only for Mitchell's Ice Cream! Simple flavors, both classic and tropical, you won't run out of options. I personally love the avocado, ube, macapuno, and cantaloupe (which is, sadly, a seasonal flavor)....More

Never a disapointment! ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS the most decadent flavors. Hands down, some of the best ice cream made anywhere.

I love this ice cream. They have been in business since the 1950's. Open daily from 11:00am to 11:00pm I love the variety of flavors made and offered. I try something new everytime. They make mango, coconut, Ube sorbets. Mitchell's makes seasonal ice cream flavors...More
