We have gone here many times when we visit San Francisco, over the many years the prices have gone up, but $26 for 2 Sundaes is too much. We had 2 Carmel Sundaes with a piece of tasteless chocolate in the top. The sundaes were...More

We spent last couple of days of our holiday in SF and wanted to have nice ice creams, so after little research online, went here. We wanted to like it but now I wish we have spent our money some other place instead. Whole place...More

Went here after seeing a YouTube on what to eat in San Francisco. Wasn’t disappointed, not a huge fan of their chocolate but their signature brownie dish was to die for. Husband got the banana split which he said was the best he had had...More

But it was just so so. Has nice info on the making of chocolate and some cool antique labels and info on the walls. Shop sells the Sam Ghardelli chocolate you can buy anywhere. Drinking chocolate was too sweet in my opinion. Wish I’d gone...More

We were a group of 7 and all of us took different things so I got to try a lot of sundaes. I liked one Irish coffee sundae. I took a hot chocolate (too bad as I was having a running nose) and it was...More

This has the atmosphere of an old fashioned ice cream parlor/candy shop. The chocolate and candy are very good. The workers are generous with the free samples. The chocolate store frequently runs specials on various chocolates. This is a quintessential San Francisco experience. Don't miss...More
