Ice Cream stores in San Francisco

The Ice Cream Bar

An Ice Cream Bar that looks like in the 30's. Soda fountains and icecreams. Everything is made and prepared in the store on Cole.

And they open rather late. Perfect spot to hang out on Cole.

815 Cole street



San Franpsycho

On 9th avenue, the local brand got the bright idea to open a Cafe / Ice Cream Bar, Sundays par San Franpsycho. It is nice, bright, beautiful, and good with the also very local ThreeTwins ice creams.

1248 9th avenue (between Lincoln and Irving)



San Francisco's Hometown Creamery

Almost right next door, SFHC opened in the former Japanese Restaurant Hotei location. Everything takes place there. Honey Lemon Rosemary us a must. 

1290 9th avenue



Polly Ann

Little secret for 50 years hidden in the midst of the Sunset on Noriega.You will love the wheel on the wall to help choose between dozens of flavors: Bumpy Freeway, Four C C C C, American Beauty (rose), Taro, Starwars, Blueberry Cheesecake... Obviously, you need help.

Great stop on your back from OB.

3138 Noriega Street (@ 38th avenue)

Bi-Rite Creamery.

Organic creamy ice-creams and delicious sorbets. Flavors change everyday (salted caramel and blood orange are my favorites). Enjoy while strolling in Dolores Park. Trendy place, except some wait.

3692 18th street, Mission.

550 Divisadero, Nopa  



Smitten Ice Cream

Here and there in San Francisco and the Bay Area. It sounds like techno ice cream with traditional presentation. Our article.

2404 California (juste a cote de Delfina)

432 Octavia

+ Oakland, Los Altos et Lafayette



Mitchell’s Ice Cream.

Classic american creamy and rich ice-creams, sundaes, milkshakes... Oldschool vibe.

688 San Jose avenue, Mission.



Humphry Slocombe.

Delicious organic ice-creams you won't find anywhere else. Flavors (and their name) are very creative. What can possibly be behind "Secret breakfast" and "Jesus juice" ?

Harrison street @24th, Mission. 



Swensen’s Ice cream.

Right at the top of Russian Hill. A mandatory break before or after Lombard street's zigzags.




Gelateria Naia actually. In Little Italy (makes sense!) or Walnut Creek, flavors with an Italian twist (Stracciatella, Zabajone and Nocciola) and fruity sorbets.

520 Columbus Avenue (between Powell & Stockton)

1245 North Broadway, Walnut Creek



Mr. and Mrs. Miscellaneous

Top corner store in the Dogpatch. Classical and unexpected flavors.
