Many, many choices of flavors that you will NOT find in most ice cream stores. Like Buko, which is delicious! BUT , this store CHARGES for regular sugar cones, where other stores do NOT! On warm weather days, expect to wait in line for at...More

This shop is worth making a detour to get to. The ice-cream is very good, make sure you haven't filled up on mediocre food before you get here, save it for the ice-cream!

Mitchell's is an institution. It's usually packed, so expect a line. They have chocolate and vanilla etc. etc. but try the wacky flavors. Lucuma, Avocado, Yam, these are unique tropical flavor that you won't find elsewhere. They also have a to-go line so you don't...More

We came across this emporium of delight by accident when returning from dinner one night. If you like ice cream and are not dieting it is a treasure. I especially enjoyed the ice-cream loaded shakes. Worth a visit.

Yes, they have the standard flavors but so many other interesting choices. We went late on a Thursday night so didn't have to stand in line. Worth standing in line for if that's what you have to do!

Mitchell's is an absolute marvel! There always seems to be an out-the-door line waiting to be served, and parking is a bit of a problem (fortunately, my closest friends and home-away-from-home are just around the corner), but these minor inconveniences fall away with the first...More

San Francisco is a bit quirky in that a car is needed to enable one to get the most of all it has to offer ( especially if visiting for the first time and not wanting to waste moments trying to decipher the transit system);...More
