Employees were super friendly and willing to let us try a number of flavors before making our selection. The ice cream flavors were varied in normal and unique combos. We loved our flavors and enjoyed the quaint shop.

I believe there is a mismatch between expectation and reality after hearing lots of reviews it is the best ice cream in town. It was good but nothing special. We tried standard flavors and their specialities.

Recently had Bi-Rite ice cream for the first time and it is top notch. It measures up to the Van Leeuwens and Humphrey Slocombes, though still a hair beneath the Graeters and Jeni's of the world. Definitely worth a visit!

I wish I lived in San Fran for this place alone. Every flavor I tried was absolutely delicious and all of it creamy. The flavors are unique but not over the top - you can tell they really think about what they’re creating. The staff...More
