Beyond delicious!

Every flavor I tried was delicious but I ended up getting the berry sundae- vanilla ice cream with house made berry compote, homemade ginger snaps and fresh whipped cream. I have seriously been dreaming about this sundae!!!!! So amazing!

The ice cream was surprising, delicious, creamy, salty and innovative. Definitely worth a special trip for this cone.

Some of the best ice cream i've ever had! The unique flavor combinations keep me coming back. My mom got my husband the Bi-Rite recipe book for Christmas last year because we talked about it so much

Especially on weekends when the weather is nice, the line is crazy long -- sometimes wrapping around the corner -- to get a cone or cup of ice cream. And I suppose I might put up the wait if I didn't have a choice. But I do. If you know what flavor you want, and are willing to buy in... More

Salted caramel ice cream. Yummmmmm! One of the best ice cream places in SF. Line does get a little long. If I want other exotic ice cream, go to Mitchell's and try some Ube ice cream! Love them too!

This is the place to go for tasty, homemade ice cream. Inventive flavors and very delicious. I had the salted caramel and was very happy. It's not a fancy place, just has great ice cream.

Bi-Rite is much more than premium gourmet ice cream. Bi-Rite is like a mini vacation unto itself. After you treat yourself to creative original flavors or a classic favorite, you absolutely must go to their market across the street, where you will find gourmet versions of anything you can imagine. Beautiful exotic produce, imported cheese, a brilliant little wine selection,... More

really great icecream. Took the cool box to bring some tubs back. Very well organised queue as it went right round the corner. Just as well you can bypass the queue to buy tubs to take home. Handy park across the road to sit in.would definately go again
