Time Out Says

4 out of 5 stars

This East Bay original expanded into San Francisco in 2016. But “expansion” is hardly the word: This 150-square-foot storefront claims to be the smallest scoop shop in America. (There are ample neon-colored stools stationed on the adjoining Claude Lane.) The beauty of the ice cream is in its simplicity: just cream, milk, eggs, sugar, and salt. All the ingredients are sourced from Clover Stornetta Farms in Petaluma the waffle cones are made on-site. Owners Kevin Best and Neil Rideout serve a dozen flavors each day. Try the turmeric and ginger and the Dirty South (bourbon caramel ice cream generously studded with candied pecans).
