A Sunday Sundae

We truly enjoyed our ice cream sundaes. Each came with loads of hot gooey toppings, the caramel is to die for. The scoops of ice cream were huge and a two scoop sundae would easily feed two people. The ice cream was smooth, rich, and creamy with lots of flavor. We made the mistake of ordering a... read more

Having seen the Kitchen Sink on Man v. Food, we felt the urge to go the San Francisco Creamery Co. on our West Coast trip. Needless to say, we were not disappointed. The Kitchen Sink is every bit as large as it looks (and extremely delicious). Very fun experience!

Delicious ice cream - wide variety of flavours - very long wait, so don't go if you're in a hurry! The flavours are really tasty and this is definitely a notch above average - makes eating ice cream seem healthy!

We went in for a sunday but stayed for a meal AND a sunday. 3 Little Pigs is a great pulled pork, bacon, and ham sandwich. The coffee ice cream is so intense it's like a dark roast Starbucks in full robust flavor. Don't get more than their baseball size as it's too much to eat a softball size serving.

People come from all over the Bay Area for the ice cream and to celebrate their birthdays, and other celebrations. The Creamery not only has a wide variety of homemade ice cream and a kid and family friendly facility with that old ice cream parlor atmosphere, but some pretty darn good family lunch and dinner food as well. In addition,... More

This place has long lines, a decent amount of hype, but overall the ice cream is only about average and the service is a bit lacking. The flavors are good and the one great thing is that their selection is pretty wide. However, overall, I think there are better options for desert than waiting in longer lines for ice cream... More

The creamery is always a treat. All of the ice cream I have tasted over the past ten years has been excellent. My favorite is the basic hot fudge sundae. The fudge sauce is on par with the ice cream. I have actually never eaten there. I'm not going to fill up on real food when I can have ice... More

I love their ice cream shakes: thick, chocolatey and big. A friend and I split on on a hot summer's afternoon last week, I was ready to run back in and get another. There's plenty of indoor seating and some outdoor as well. I've never eaten a meal here but it is my go to for my beloved shakes.

If you love ice cream, you will love this location for your decadent desires. While not for those watching their weight, this is an indulgence of wonderful creamy delight. Way better than stopping the ice cream man in the neighborhood!

I was craving a Rocky Road ice cream cone so I went to SF Creamery. Yes, the ice cream had nuts and this was definitely to my liking-quite creamy. Since it has been a while since I have purchased a cone, I was taken aback at the price-$4.25!! No, I did not pay extra for the waffle cone because it... More
