For those who don’t have the stamina for the snaking line at Bi-Rite Creamery, this tiny, family-owned gelateria a block away is an excellent alternative. The Mission gelato shop—which translates to “the crazy cup”—is helmed by Mauro Pislor, an Italian transplant with a long history in ice cream. You’ll find fruity, tart, and spicy flavors made with ingredients imported from Italy, including coconut, passion fruit, cinnamon, espresso, and lemon-lavender. (Bonus: dark chocolate and vanilla soy gelato!) The toppings are equally eclectic, spanning coffee, caramel, mango, white chocolate, and more. If you’re feeling extra decadent, splurge for the chocolate- and peanut-dipped waffle cone.
