We stopped at Norman's after a long walk through the city and it was exactly what we needed. The ice cream was delicious and everyone had something they enjoyed. Great place!

A very good place in an otherwise very touristy spot (where you would think you have a risk of being ripped off). But the icecream are just excellent at a reasonable price and the staff if very friendly.

Norman's Ice Cream serves Mtichell's Ice Cream, which is known as the best here in SF. It did not disappoint. We enjoyed all of our flavors(mint chips, espresso chips, and even Philippine Ube!) were all rich, creamy, and delicious.

I went to Norman's 14 years ago, and it is just as good now. There is a reason why it is still open when so many other shops in The Cannery come and go.

Our double-decker bus driver recommended this place and it did not disappoint. Very small shop hidden away. Ice cream delicious and proprietor very personable.

Had to try the famous sundae and did not disappoint. The Ube and pistachio ice cream compliment each other with the hot fudge sundae. My sundae looks just like the poster. A work of art a simple masterpiece.

Wandering by then was drawn in by both their coffee and their ice cream. Met the owners who were very nice and friendly. The coffee was perfect for our evening walk. The ice cream was rich and smooth and oh so tasty! I will return!

On the way back to our hotel, we saw a man enjoying ice cream and he directed us to Norman’s Ice Cream. What a find - an ice cream shop proudly serving Mitchell’s locally made ice cream. The ice cream shop was located in the...More
