“Best Ice Cream in SFO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

This was the best ice cream we had during our trip! It's a hidden gem in The Cannery. Their Rocky Road is made with Walnuts, like it used to be made in the old days. Bring Cash.

“It's just ice cream”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

I read the reviews of Norman's so I added it to the list of stops while visiting Fisherman's Wharf. We found it in the Cannery Bldg. It's a tiny ice cream shop with about 16 or so flavors. I got the coconut which was yummy but nothing spectacular. Not sure what others were raving about. If your in the mood for ice cream, stop in but don't make a special trip.

“Yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Norman's ice cream is absolutely yummy. It's made fresh every day and you can taste that. There's a vast choice of tastes and they all are equally good.
