Sundae Time

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.

The best chocolate ice cream i've had. The chocolate lover, dark and tasty in a waffle cone. Liked the place so much that I visited it 3 times during my stay in the area. Everybody that went with me were also very happy with what they ate.

On vacation a local suggested we go here and we were so happy with the selection and creaminess of the homemade Icecream. We got coffee, vanilla and chocolate. Simple flavors but packed a punch for our tastebuds! Coffee was good too.

We visit family in the SF East Bay about twice a year and this past New Years decided to have lunch at the SF Creamery Company. It was a bit of an impulse decision as we were not exactly looking for this place but we are really glad we did. The atmosphere is really fun and pleasant, very family friendly,... More

For me to go back to somewhere for 3 consecutive nights means that I like something about the place. Made famous in our house by Adam Richman and his Kitchen Sink challenge, the San Francisco Creamery is our "go-to" place for dessert. Every time I have been in there, I have seen a group of friends having a Kitchen Sink,... More

Fun place for ice cream aficionados, a decent burger type place too! The Kitchen Sink is a memorable order for a group,of newbies or a visiting family of ice cream loving children! I have even been known to dash in and get a sundae to go late in the evening!
