We were visiting San Francisco for a few days and decided to try and do some of the "Man v Food" locations while there. This restaurant came up and looked rather good. So, we made the 40 minute drive from the city to Walnut Creek. The town is very pretty and has lots of good shopping opportunities. The restaurant was... More

We visited the place twice. The first time was when they were technically closed but the crew still gladly accomodated our take out order. We were surprised with honest to goodness big serving of one scope ice cream with pistachio nuts flavor..Love it! Second time was indoor, the food and service was good! For dessert we tried banana split, and... More

We found this ice cream shop/restaurant on a site listing restaurants featured on TV shows (Man vs. Food). We were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and the atmosphere is great. A few patrons ordered the kitchen sink but we just ordered sundae's to share. They were huge and delicious. Downtown Walnut Creek is very nice, clean and safe.... More

Whenever we visit the in-laws in Northern California (the Walnut Creek/Lafayette area), the San Francisco Creamery is a MUST visit! My wife loves the grilled herb salmon, and I love the chicken salad & avocado sandwich. The kids are always happy with the mac & cheese and chicken tenders & fries. But the best part is the ice cream.... I... More

After landing in San Jose we stopped enroute to Napa at the San Francisco Creamery Co. Had great sandwiches and even an more awesome icecream sundae with almond icecream. Was a great lunch spot and food was wonderful!

The food was good - basics; hamburgers, grilled cheese sandwich, french fries. Large portions - an order of fries was enough for 3 people (depending on your appetite) I got 2 1/2 scoops of ice cream, it was still a lot. We were there for our son's birthday with 3 of his friends. It was all good. We'll go back.

I had dinner here one evening. The meal was good but the ice cream was amazing. This is a great place for kids and ice cream and a decent meal. I will be back the next time I'm in the area.
