Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

This San Francisco institution is known for its high-quality, local produce—and the same ingredients get folded into its house-made ice cream. Every flavor is made fresh daily in small batches. (Best-selling flavors like ricanelas and salted caramel often sell out.) Even the toppings and mix-ins, like marshmallows, peanut brittle, and brownies, are made in the Mission shop. The ice cream incorporates organic milk eggs, and cream from Straus Family Creamery, hand churned into inventive flavors like honey lavender, roasted banana, blueberry buttermilk, and cream cheese carrot cake. In addition to cow’s milk treats, the shop offers velvety buffalo-milk soft serve from Double 8 Dairy in Petaluma.
