WOW! SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM

One of the first spots I was taken to by friends when I moved to Walnut Creek. The variety of ice cream flavors will overwhelm you, Beautifully served and served by very attentive young waiters and waitresses (I guess we call them Servers today.)

It is a casual, old- fashioned ice cream parlor. Any children or ice cream lovers (like me) would be delighted to eat lunch or go in for ice cream only and indulge yourself in the many choices of sundaes and other concoctions. The lunch menu is tasty and varied.

The ice cream at the San Francisco Creamery compares favorably to Fenton's Creamery in Oakland. The food is good (try the crab sandwich) but the stars are the choices of ice cream. The ice cream is of great quality and you get a lot of it. This is THE "go to" place for ice cream in the bay area (along... More

All I can say is i'm soooo glad I found it. Superb ice cream. Really friendly and helpful service. Let you taste then decide. Such ample servings at very reasonable prices. Definitely will be going back for the Thin Mint ice cream.

The ice cream is yummy and the creations they make with it equally good. The hot fudge is dark and plentiful and the shakes thick and creamy. Don't overlook the food menu. Hamburgers and fries are also pretty good. Service is good and attentive. Great family restaurant in downtown.

We enjoyed an after dinner ice cream and downtown stroll with Wisconsin family visitors. All four flavors received exclamations!

The food is basic pub fare. We come for the overly gooey sundaes. They taste great and it is great way to celebrate a milestone in our daughters life.

This place in downtown oakland reminds me of going to ice cream places for a burger, fries and a sundae when I was growing up. The ice cream flavors are varied and the ice cream itself is terrific, creamy and rich. The portions for the price will have you running here from Baskin Robbins and Cold Stone Creamery- this is...

A real old fashioned soda fountain / ice cream parlor that serves real ice cream Milk Shakes & malted Milk Shakes. They have those hard to find lack & White Sundaes, Black & Brown Sundaes and Banana Splits. You better be hungry — they're not stingy with the ice cream.
