Bi-Rite Creamery

Bi-Rite's creamy salted-caramel ice cream launched the craze for this heavenly pairing in San Francisco, and it's still the bar that all others strive to reach. Since then, it has introduced other taste sensations that have garnered cult followings, among them balsamic strawberry, brown sugar with ginger caramel swirl, honey lavender, basil and ricanelas (cinnamon with snickerdoodle cookies). Next door, the bake shop features house-made cupcakes, cookies and seasonal sweets. The Creamery is the offshoot of the gourmet Bi-Rite Market down the street, so if the line is too long, you can always opt for a pint or a quart from the store.

Forget Rice-A-Roni, this, my friends, is the true San Francisco treat. A creamy, dreamy ice cream in tons of inventive flavors from one of the city's most beloved markets... grab a scoop to go and head to the park or stroll through the Mission—it's one of the most romantic ways to get to know the city, or to welcome yourself back to it after a stint away.
